Description: Chinese Elm can grow into quite a large tree and is hardy into southern Maine. ‘Hokkaido’, however, is a miniature, dwarf, tiny plant with extremely small leaves and thickly branched habit, forming a low mound. This is a plant that should be a bonsai growers delight. It is definitely a novelty plant for the real plant enthusiast and should make an excellent rock garden plant, or it could be mixed in a dwarf conifer garden. This is an excellent tiny dwarf.
