Ulmus glabra
Cultivar 'Dovaei'
Origin Europe

The Wych Elm cultivar Ulmus glabra 'Dovaei' was raised by the André Leroy nursery at Angers, France, as Ulmus dovaei before 1868.


Leroy described the tree as vigorous, well-shaped, large-leaved, and 'proper for avenues'.[1] The Herbarium of the Arnold Arboretum holds a leaf-spray and samara specimen of U. glabra 'Dovaei' (spelled 'Davaei').[2]


No specimens are known to survive, 'Dovaei' is not known to remain in cultivation in Europe. Introduced to Australia, the tree was marketed in the early 20th century by the Gembrook Nursery near Melbourne and Searl's Garden Emporium in Sydney. Planted along the Avenue of Honour [2] in Ballarat in 1918, it is not known whether it survives there or elsewhere in Australia. There is no record of the tree's introduction to North America.
