Ulmus minor
Cultivar 'Dijkwel'
Origin Netherlands

The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Dijkwel' was first described in the Van't Westeinde Catalogue 27, p. 28, 1957-58.

Description[edit]

Described as resembling 'Schuurhoek' but with slightly larger, brighter leaves. Difficult to propagate from cuttings, the cultivar was noted as being free from frostcracks.[1]

Cultivation[edit]

Production of 'Dijkwel' by the Van't Westeinde nursery (now 'Kwekerij Westhof') ceased in 1965; no living trees are known but one dead specimen still stood (2008) in the vicinity of the village of 's-Heer Abtskerke in the Zeeland province of the Netherlands.
