Planera aquatica, or Water Elm is single species in the southeastern United States, a small deciduous tree 10–15 m tall, closely related to the Elms but with a softly, prickly nut 10–15 mm diameter, instead of a winged seed. It grows, as the name suggests, on wet sites. The leaves are 3–7 cm long, with a serrated margin.
It is moderately susceptible to Dutch Elm disease.
