    Zelkova serrata
    Gray Bark Elm
    Japanese Zelkova
    Sawleaf Zelkova

    A deciduous tree with a umbrella-like habit that makes a perfect specimen tree. Gray bark is smooth accented by foliage that has tapering tips. Leaves put on a fantastic show in the fall turning from yellow to orange and red. In bonsai culture this tree is grown as “broom style” or replicating the way a deciduous tree thrive in nature. The pretty gray-orange bark and fall color make it perfect! Also used in container / deck plantings, in addition to standards. Zone 5 and above. Wind and drought tolerant. Sun to shade.
