The Field Elm Ulmus minor sensu latissimo cultivar 'Cucullata' was listed by Loddiges (Hackney, London) in the catalogue of 1823 as Ulmus campestris cucullata, and later by Loudon in Arb. Frut. Brit. 3: 1378, 1838, as U. campestris var. cucullata.
Loudun described the tree as having "leaves curiously curved, something like a hood".
Pests and diseases
The tree has no resistance to Dutch elm disease.
All but extinct; a specimen at the Ryston Hall , Norfolk, arboretum, obtained from the Späth nursery in Berlin, was killed by the earlier strain of Dutch elm disease prevalent in the 1930s. Another grew near Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh, as late as 1990, but it is not known whether it survives. The cultivar is not known to have been introduced to North America or Australasia.
