How to grow

LUTECE Nanguen is a fast-growing tree that will reach 10m or so in 20 years, typically averaging 50cm-80cm of growth per year.


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.
