Siberian Elm Tree - Ulmus Pumila 

 

The Siberian Elm tree is a highly invasive tree. It is a aggressive spreader through seedlings because of a high rate of seed germination. They have a bushy appearance and their are deciduous in cold weather climates and semi evergreen in warmer areas. The leaves are less then 7cm long and 3cm wide. The leaves have a serrated margin and change colors during the autumn months to a dark yellow from a previous dark green. The bark of the Siberian Elm is gray and ridged and furrowed.

The Siberian Elm is native to the far east of Russia, Mongolia, eastern Siberia, Tibet, Central Asia, Korea, China and India. It is commonly referred to as the dwarf elm or the Asiatic Elm. The Siberian Elm is the only elm that is able to self polinate. Its flowers bloom for about a week in early spring prior to leaf developement. Each flower is about 1/8 inch in size. The flowers create a samara which is a seed with a membrane wing around it. The wind disperses these flat and tan colored samaras to aide in pollination.

If found growing in its native climate, the Siberian Elm can live 100 to 150 years. They have a shorter life span of about 60 years when found growing in temperate climates. While Siberian Elms are resistant to Dutch Elm Disease, they are still susceptible to elm leaf beetles. Siberian Elms do best with full light exposure of no less then 6 hours and grow well in moist and well drained soil conditions.
