(D = deciduous leaf losing)
Ulmus procera (syn. U. campestris). When planted as a hedge, the English elm grows rapidly up to 10 ft., tolerates adverse conditions, and withstands hard clipping at any time of the year. Put in young plants about 2 ft. high during the winter, spacing them 1-1/2 to 2 ft. apart.
