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