Ulmus glabra
Cultivar 'Corylifolia'
Origin Europe

The Wych Elm cultivar Ulmus glabra 'Corylifolia' (: Hazel-leaved) was first described by Host [1] in Flora Austriaca 1: 329. 1827. Another cultivar of the same name is described by Zapalowicz[2], in Conspectus Florae Galiciae Criticus 2: 98, 1908, but was assumed to be 'Cornuta'.[1]

Description[edit]

Host described the tree as having broad-ovate scabrid leaves, doubly toothed with broad, obtuse teeth.

Cultivation[edit]

No confirmed specimens are known to survive. An elm with hazel-like leaves stands in Hove Recreation Ground, Hove, and may be similar to the cultivar 'Corylifolia'.
