var. lasiocarpa Rehder

Common Names
Hairy-fruited Glaucescent Elm

Interest in Ulmus glaucescens stems principally from its apparent tolerance of arid conditions, but it is extremely rare in cultivation. It forms part of the research collection at the Morton Arboretum, and is grown by Sunshine Nursery in Oklahoma (where it can suffer heavy damage from Elm Leaf Beetle); there is also a specimen at the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden near Adelaide, South Australia (Wikipedia 2008b). All these are derived from seed sent from the Beijing Botanical Garden. Horticulturally, U. glaucescens is probably most desirable for its very attractive bark, which is mottled in grey and fawn, with reddish brown lenticels. The specimen observed at the Morton Arboretum in 2006 was multistemmed, with a dense canopy of scabrid dull green leaves.
