Ulmus glabra
Cultivar 'Macrophylla'
Origin France

The Wych Elm cultivar Ulmus glabra 'Macrophylla' was first mentioned by Lavallée in Arboretum Segrezianum 237, 1877.

Description[edit]

The tree was later described as having the largest leaves, and being of very strong growth.[1] Augustine Henry [2] thought the tree identical with those he saw at Looymans' nursery at Oudenbosch, which in turn he considered indistinguishable from the cultivar 'Pitteurs' growing in the town of St. Trond (Flemish: Sint-Truiden) in Belgium before the First World War.

Cultivation[edit]

No specimens are known to survive.
