Ulmus minor
Cultivar 'Latifolia'
Origin Mechelen, Belgium

The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Latifolia' was identified in the Audibert [1] (Tonelle, Tarascon, France) Catalogue of 1817, page 23. The tree is reputed to have originated circa 1750 in or around Mechelen, and widely planted throughout Belgium; it was considered 'possibly the same as 'Belgica' (Belgian Elm)' by Green.[1]

Description[edit]

Audibert described the tree as having broader leaves than the species, and which expand very early in the spring.

Cultivation[edit]

'Latifolia' was known to have been marketed (as U. Montana latifolia) in Poland in the 19th century by the Ulrich nursery,[2] Warsaw, and may still survive in Eastern Europe; it is not known to have been introduced to North America or Australasia.
