Plant Collection

Japanese zelkova
Zelkova serrata

Catalogue No. 1932-0504*A
Height: 84 feet
Spread: 92 feet
DBH: 56.7 inches

Native to China, Korea, and Japan. Pennsylvania State Champion. Like its botanical cousins the elms, the Japanese zelkovas are often used as a street tree. Its beautiful bark, vase-shape, and wonderful red-orange fall color make this a great selection as a shade tree. This state champion has been growing at the Arboretum since the Morrises' time.
