This elm variety was initially developed in the Netherlands specifically for resistance to Dutch Elm Disease (DED). Its natural resistance is the result of cross-breeding a number of different species within the genus Ulmus. Most of the initial field trials were carried out in Paris, and its trade name 'LUTECE' is derived from the Latin name for Paris.
