Ulmus × viminalis 'Pulverulenta', Bedford, UK. 1991
|Hybrid parentage||U. minor subsp. minor × U. minor var. plotii|
Ulmus × viminalis Lodd. 'Pulverulenta' is a hybrid cultivar derived from the crossing U. minor subsp. minor Richens × U. minor var. plotii Druce. The tree was first mentioned by Dieck, (Zöschen, Germany) in Haupt-Cat. 1885, p. 82, as U. scabra viminalis pulverulenta Hort., but without description.
Pests and diseases
'Pulverulenta' is very susceptible to Dutch elm disease.
A possible example of the cultivar grew at Busbridge Lakes, Surrey, in 1963, but the tree is now possibly extinct in the UK (one tree may still survive in a street in Bedford, last noted in 1991) and it is not known to remain in cultivation anywhere else in the world.
