Musashino Zelkova

In the arsenal of street trees, Zelkova has much to offer. 'Musashino' is upright, even narrower than Z. 'Green Vase'. Moderately fast growing, this tree can withstand pollution and wind and has considerable tolerance to salt and drought. Elm-like, dark green foliage turns yellow to rusty orange in fall. The same qualities that make this an outstanding tree for parking lots - the ability to fit into tight spaces - also make it popular as an accent in today'™s urban gardens.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 45 - 45'
  • Spread: 15 - 20'
  • Shape: Upright, vase -shaped
  • Foliage: Dark green
  • Fall Foliage: Yellow to rusty orange
  • Zone: 5 - 8
