Ulmus minor 'Rueppellii'
|Ulmus minor sensu latissimo|
The Field Elm Ulmus minor sensu latissimo cultivar 'Rueppellii' is of unknown origin. First listed by the Späth nursery, Berlin, in Catalogue 73, p. 124, 1888-89., as Ulmus campestris Rueppelli, and later by Krüssmann  in Handb. Laubgeh, 2: 535, 1962, as a cultivar.
A tree with a single stem, and numerous ascending branches forming a globose or ovoid crown, much like 'Umbraculifera'. The branches are slightly corky, and the branchlets pubescent, bearing small leaves similar to those of the Cornish Elm.
Pests and diseases
The tree is almost certainly named for T. Rueppell, owner of the Smith & Co nursery in Hamburg during the latter part of the 19th century.
