Jacqueline Hillier Elm ~ Ulmus minor 'Jacqueline Hillier'

Regular price $18.99

A very cool miniature garden tree! In life-sized gardens, this wee one is called a shrub, but with a trunk like that, she fits our purposes perfectly as a miniature tree with leaves that are completely in scale too!

Deciduous: The leaves on the Jacqueline Hillier Elm will turn a golden color in the fall, drop its leaves to show its wonderful armature for the winter months. They are just starting to flush out with the spring growth now - March 29, 2019.

Trim away bottom branches to shape it into a tree-form. Deciduous, leaves will drop in the fall. Faster-growing in the ground.

Watch for scale in the spring, just pluck them off with some gloved hands, scrap it off gently with a knife, or get the kids to do it. Treat the spot with a Q-Tip or cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.
