Buy Frontier Elm online. Combines small glossy leaves with lovely red-purple autumn coloration unlike most other elm trees. It is perfect for use in smaller landscapes, along city streets. 'Frontier' blazes a trail for elms in the urban landscape. Rather graceful round-headed tree often with pendulous branchlets. Grows at a medium to fast rate depending on moisture and fertility levels. Leaves are dark green changing to yellowish and redish purple in fall. The bark is magnificent and often a beautiful mottled combination of gray, green orange and brown. A US National Arboretum Introduction.
