Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) tree, TOP SIZE, Organic

$40.00

Family:  Ulmaceae

Hardiness:  -40 degrees F

Deciduous tree native to Central, Eastern and Southern United States and Canada.  Excellent shade tree, perfect antitussive and throat-soothing mucilage producer.  This is the species that yields the famous mucilage-laden medicine known as “slippery elm bark” which is actually the spring-stripped inner bark of the mature tree.  Slippery elm prefers part shade to sun and good water, drainage, and a limestone soil.  There’s alot of information about this tree in my book “Growing at-risk,” so please feel free to read that.

Potted tree, certified organically grown
