A Hardy Alternative to the American Elm
Why 'Green Vase'® Zelkova Trees?
The Green Vase® Zelkova has everything you could ever want in a shade tree, from its ornamental interest in every season and pest and disease resistance to hardy, tolerant growth.
Covered in oblong, dark green leaves in the spring and summer, the vase-shaped tree brings spectacular color and visual interest for months at a time. The Zelcova's autumn show will impress with a variety of colors from rusted orange, to bronze, and even pale yellow.
This Japanese native’s branches grow in a striking scaffolding pattern, and the peeling gray bark reveals a deep orange color beneath…making the dormant season ornamental, too. Even better is the fact that it's drought-tolerant with no serious disease or pest issues, able to grow in climates with hot, dry summers, and tolerant of pollution and urban conditions.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Green Vase® Zelkova is easy to plant in your yard. Because of its tolerance to most soil conditions, you can plant this tree anywhere you like as long as it’s in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Also, adding mulch to the base of your tree will help keep the moisture in and prevent weeds and grass competition. You don't need to add anything to your soil when planting - simply plant in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball.
2. Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. After a couple of years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells.
If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water your tree.
3. Pruning: You don't need to prune the Green Vase Zelkova, but it can be helpful to remove dead bark and branches in the fall.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
