Cultivar 'Propendens'
Origin Europe

The Field Elm cultivar Ulmus minor 'Propendens' is a comparatively rare cultivar, believed to have once been popular in eastern Europe. [1].[1]


'Propendens' has branches wide-spreading, nodding, and corky; the leaves are small, 2 cm (0.79 in)–3 cm (1.2 in) long.[2]


No specimens are known to survive. In the early 20th century the Späth nursery of Berlin distributed 'Propendens' as U. campestris suberosa pendula. Three specimens supplied by Späth to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 1902 by that name may survive in Edinburgh as it was the practice of the Garden to distribute trees about the city (viz. the Wentworth Elm);[3] the current list of Living Accessions held in the Garden per se does not list the plant.[4]

Green [1] treated U. × hollandica 'Rugosa Pendula' as a synonym, and a specimen under that name grows at the Morton Arboretum (Acc. no. 652-62). However, the tree in question more closely resembles the common U. × hollandica (see Gallery).
