The Japanese Elm’s leaves are simple and ovate to oblong-ovate with serrated margins, rough on top and smooth on the underside. They are dark green throughout the summer, changing to yellow, orange, red and purple in autumn.

The bark is grey and smooth, and the young shoots are reddish at first. The straight trunk and smooth bark of the Zelkova are appealing characteristics, maturing to grey in colour.

  1. Many seeds germinated. Helpful and very friendly seller

  2. I bought some seeds.

  3. Exactly as advertised… A packet of seeds.

  4. Very happy with my purchases. Thank you very much. Packaging is very nice and the qr code instruction/information page is super easy to use. I’m yet to plant the seeds but I have them all in the fridge currently for stratification and I’m sure they will do well. Thanks again and thanks for the fast shipping.
