Cultivar 'Patmore'
Origin Brandon, Manitoba, Canada

The American Elm cultivar Ulmus americana 'Patmore' was selected and raised by R. H. Patmore from a native tree in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. It may be synonymous with another cultivar from the same source, known as 'Brandon'.

Description[edit]

'Patmore' (or 'Brandon') differs from most American Elms in possessing a pyramidal, as opposed to vase, form.[1]

Pests and diseases[edit]

No other specific information available, but the species generally is highly susceptible to Dutch elm disease and Elm Yellows; it is also moderately preferred for feeding and reproduction by the adult Elm Leaf Beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola [2] [1], and highly preferred for feeding by the Japanese Beetle Popillia japonica [3] [2] [3] in the United States. U. americana is also the most susceptible of all the elms to verticillium wilt.[4]

Cultivation[edit]

The tree is not known to have been cultivated beyond North America.
