Ulmus propinqua 'JFS-Beiberich'

Emerald Sunshine® Elm

Another fine selection from the southern great plains from Oklahoma plantsman, Steve Biberich. The bright medium green leaves on Emerald Sunshine® really stand out. Borne on vigorous upright vase-shaped arching limbs, the thick leaves are proving insect and disease resistant and wind resistant, too. Recent elm trials rank Emerald Sunshine® as the best elm for resistance to elm leaf beetle. The golden yellow or yellow fall color is a hot attraction!
