Ulmus glabra
Cultivar 'Tomentosa'
Origin Europe

The Wych Elm cultivar Ulmus glabra 'Tomentosa' was first listed by Kirchner as Ulmus tomentosa.


The tree was later described as having the undersides of the leaves covered with thick, soft hairs, giving a pronounced grey-green appearance.[1]


A tree of the same name is listed in the Red Data Book of the Baltic Region [2] suggesting it may still survive there. It is not known to be in cultivation elsewhere.
