Discovery Japanese Elm

Dwarf Birch, also known as Bog Birch for its common occurrence in wet areas, is a small deciduous shrub native to North America.

Common in riparian zones and boreal forests across Western Canada. It is a common reclamation species.

This species is often used by local artisans to twist into shapes like willow and make decorative hearts, circles, etc.

Discovery Japanese Elm is great for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to maintain their trees as it doesn't drop many seeds. It has beautiful dark green foliage and is resistant to Dutch Elm Disease. This elm is similar in shape to the American Elm but is roughly 30% smaller. Instead of having an irregular and broad-shaped crown as other Japanese Elms do, the Discovery Japenses Elm has symmetrical branching, an upright growth form, and develops a classic vase-like crown.
