Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra), packet of 30 seeds [Canada no]

(3 customer reviews)

$4.95

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 ground-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.

30 Seeds/pkt, Open Pollinated, Untreated, NO GMO’s   [Not available to Canada]

    This little thing arrived only a week ago. I placed it in a one gallon pot and set it in the greenhouse and it has already tripled the size of its leaves and gained a little height! I only wish I had purchased more than one. I will be waiting for more of these. Very happy with my little tree.
