The Accolade® Elm, Ulmus 'Morton', has an excellent resistance to Dutch Elm disease. This tree has an upright, spreading shape. It is a fast growing tree that has dark green foliage in summer. It creates an excellent shade tree for larger yards or street plantings.

Elms prefer full sun and adapt easily to extremes in pH, moisture, wind and heat. They do prefer well-drained, sandy, loamy or clay soils. The aggressive roots can probably break sidewalks and raise pavement if trees are improperly located.

Accolade® Elm Disease and Pest Resistance

The Accolade Elm has an excellent disease and pest resistance, drought tolerance, and good yellow fall color. It has a rapid growth rate and adaptability to urban conditions.

In its 80+ years the original tree at Morton has survived three epidemics of Dutch Elm Disease there unscathed. However, two trees included in trials at the University of Minnesota were found to be afflicted by the disease in 2004, although one appears to have recovered completely.

'Morton' has also proved to be highly resistant to Elm Yellows and the elm leaf beetle Xanthogaleruca luteola. Trees grown in England suffered from Elm Black Spot (Elm anthracnose) in wet summers.
