The hybrid elm cultivar Ulmus × hollandica 'Fulva' is one of a number of cultivars arising from the crossing of Wych Elm U. glabra with Field Elm U. minor. Originally raised by Hesse's Nurseries, Weener, Germany, it was first mentioned in Meded. Committee. Best. Iepenz. 10: 9, 1932, but without description.[1]

NB. The tree should not be confused with Ulmus fulva, a synonym of the American Red, or Slippery, Elm now known as Ulmus rubra.
