Elm - Drake #5 Pot
An excellent tree that is surprisingly under-used, the Drake Elm is a deciduous tree with thick foliage, arching branches, and shiny green foliage. With its umbrella-like form, the Drake makes for a great shade tree and can be planted with other elm's to create a nice canopy to frame an entrance or line a road. The Drake exhibits a fast-growing rate and is hardy to 5 degrees (in Zones 6-9). It reaches a height of 35 to 45 feet and an equal spread. Plant this elm in full sun with moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9
