Frontier Elm, Ulmus 'Frontier'
This hybrid elm has an attractive vase shape and can reach heights of up to 40 feet with a spread of up to 35 feet. It has beautiful fall color ranging from red-purple to burgundy. Like most elms it is highly adaptable to various soil types, but does not produce as many seeds as other elms. Another attractive feature of the Frontier elm is its resistance to many of the insects and diseases that other elms are susceptible to.
