Ulmus americana
Cultivar 'Nigricans'
Origin Zöschener Baumschule, Germany

The American Elm cultivar Ulmus americana 'Nigricans' was cloned from a selection made from seedlings raised by the Zöschener Baumschule, Germany, at the end of the 19th century.


The tree was distinguished by its very dark green foliage. Occasionally listed as 'Nigrescens', it has caused confusion with a U. minor cultivar of that name.[1]


No specimens are known to survive.
