Description: Japanese Zelkova is a deciduous tree that grows to 50-60 ft (15.2-18.3 m) in height and rarely will reach 100 ft (30.5 m). This attractive tree has a vase-shaped form when young and a rounded umbrella-like habit when mature. Older trees grown in the open can have a very wide and majestic canopy. The bark is smooth and light gray, with prominently raised lenticels (small wart-like corky swellings that allow for the passage of oxygen and carbon dioxide). The bark peels to reveal orange patches. The leaves are alternate, somewhat rough on top, oblong-ovate, 1-2 in (2.5-5.1 cm) long but can be up to 5 in (12.7 cm) long on some fast growing shoots. They have tapering tips, prominent veins, and marginal teeth. The foliage usually puts on a showy display in fall when the leaves turn yellow then orange or red before dropping. The flowers are small and insignificant. The fruits are green rounded dry nutlike drupes 1/4 in (0.6 cm) across. Zones: 2b - 9a Habit: Deciduous Growth: Moderate to rapid Site: Sun to partial shade; moist well-drained soil Texture: Medium Form: Low branched, vase shape in youth; ascending branches with age Height: 50 to 80' Width: 40 to 50'
