What is Ulmus parvifolia
Ulmus parvifolia, Chinese elm or lacebark elm (Scientific name: Ulmus parvifolia) is a deciduous semi-evergreen tree of the family Ulmaceae, native to China, Taiwan, Japan and other East Asian countries. It grows wild in moist habitats such as wastelands and riverbanks. In September, it produces four to six small, light yellow flowers in the leaf axils. The corolla is bell-shaped and four lobed, with red anthers that stand out. Fall flowering elms are rare worldwide.
