Re: question on Elm tree name

Tricia: Also--maybe the Chinese elm, ulmus parvifolia, as there is a
Pond of the Drunken Poet (Zhuibai Pond) located in Shanghai, China. I
know that's stretching it a bit...but closest I could come up with...I
suppose it could be the name of an old cultivar that has long since been
forgotten about...some of the Chinese elm trees located in the US that
I've read about on the 'net are known to be nearly 200 years old...Good
luck! :-)

Don't exactly know but it is worth taking a look at the Camperdown Elm which 
is associated with a poets walk.  It is Ulmus glabra var. Camperdownii.  This 
is a very nice and pricey tree used in the US and well known in our area.

Camperdown Elm is one that grows downward, toward the ground making a form 
not commonly seen in garden trees.  It is sterile and, I believe, grafted to 
a normal rootstock.

Worth a try.
