Cultivar 'Burgundy'
Origin USA

The Chinese Elm cultivar Ulmus parvifolia 'Burgundy' is a small American development.

Description[edit]

The tree rarely exceeds 6 m in height, and has a broad, rounded form. The leaves are relatively large, dark-green, turning a deep burgundy in autumn. The exfoliating mottled bark is a rich orange-brown.

Pests and diseases[edit]

The species and its cultivars are highly resistant, but not immune, to Dutch elm disease, and completely unaffected by the Elm Leaf Beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola.[1]

Cultivation[edit]

'Burgundy' is not known to be in cultivation beyond North America.

Etymology[edit]

Presumably named for the colour of its autumn foliage.
