Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra), packet of 100 seeds [Canada no]


Family:  Elm (Ulmaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7

Deciduous tree native to Central, Eastern and Southern United States and Canada.  Excellent shade tree.  Traditional usage (American Indian, TWM): nutritive emollient, antitussive.  Source of over-the-counter palliative known as slippery elm bark, the spring-stripped, dried and growund-up inner bark of the mature tree.  Slippery elm prefers part shade to sun and good water, drainage, and a limestone soil.  Seed from the new harvest is sown in the early summer.  Our experiments show first signs of germination at day 20, with 23% germ on day 24, and 30% germ by day 30.  Optimal germination temperature is 70 degrees F (21 degrees C).  More germination will occur the following spring.
