Ulmus minor
Cultivar 'Hunnybunii'
Origin England

The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Hunnybunii' was originally identified as U. nitens var. Hunnybunii Moss by Moss [1], The Cambridge British Flora. 2: 90, 1914. 'Hunnybunii' was reputed to have been commonly planted in the parklands and hedgerows of Essex, Cambridgeshire, and Huntingdonshire in the UK before the advent of Dutch elm disease.[1][2]

Description[edit]

Moss described it as a taller tree than 'Sowerbyi', with the lower branches spreading at right angles, the upper less tortuous; leaves even more asymmetrical at the base, more acuminate at the apex.[1] Melville considered it a hybrid of 'Coritana'. [3]

Pests and diseases[edit]

Though susceptible to Dutch Elm Disease, field elms produce suckers and usually survive in this form in their area of origin.

Cultivation[edit]

No mature specimens are known to survive.
