Ulmus minor
Cultivar 'Concavaefolia'
Origin England

The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Concavaefolia' was first described by Loudon in Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum, 3: 1378, 1838.

Description[edit]

Loudon thought the tree resembled 'Cucullata'.[1]

Cultivation[edit]

No specimens are known to survive, though a suckering concave-leaved U. minor cultivar, distinct from 'Cucullata', survives in Edinburgh, in the yard of St James's Church, Constitution Street, Leith, where an 1882 print shows a narrow elm-like tree,[2][3] and in East Fettes Avenue. The leaves resemble those of sweet basil, and are less elongated than those of 'Cucullata', while the tree is fastigiate in form, unlike the pendulous 'Cucullata', and more sparsely leaved.
