Three Chinese elm tree seedlings from Mr. Nature via etsy They arrived bare roots 6 to 8" tall from Florida. Sent Ups express took 4 days to arrive, as it is june/july they came green and moist wrapped in plastic moist newspaper in a small tube, all seem to have made the transition to rich mulch and sand mix. Mr Nature sent me an extra one with very little root it's leaves fell off but it may come back. According to some research these elms are resistant to the disease that has decimated the American elm. They are extremely hearty enjoy full sun and are drought tolerant. Plan to plant 2 out side and keep one in a container. They join 17 other bonsai and small trees in my brooklyn collection.
