Wingham

Wingham is a modern elm, with perhaps the best resistance to Dutch Elm Disease currently available.

Like all elms it will eventually become a large stately tree, ideal for parks and big vistas.

Wingham is also a good host for the White-letter Hairstreak butterfly, a native UK species which is entirely dependent on elms for breeding.

How to grow

Like most elms Wingham is a fast growing tree, capable of adding up to 1m of growth per year in good conditions. It should reach a mature height of 7m or more.

It is very tolerant of urban pollution.

History

Wingham was developed in Italy and is a hybrid with a mixed ancestry of several elm species. It was trialled in the UK by the Frank P. Matthews nursery in conjunction with elm enthusiast Dr David Herling. The first UK examples were planted in the village of Wingham in Kent, after which it has been named.
