The genus Ulmus contains around 40 large, hardy, deciduous or sometimes semi-evergreen trees, including some shrubs. They are grown for their large stature and attractive leaves, which are alternate and usually have a very unequally-sized leaf base. Tiny, yellow-green or red-brown bell-shaped flowers are produced in spring. The genus is thought to originate from Central Asia, and is found across most of the Northern Hemisphere, extending south of the equator into Indonesia. These trees are found in many different types of forest, with many cultivars and hybrids available. They have been planted as ornamental specimens in streets, gardens, and parks.
