The Camperdown Elm is a form of Wych Elm.
The original appeared at Camperdown House near Dundee in 1850.
It produces clusters of attractive hop like flowers in the spring and its lustrous leaves add well to its effect.
A small weeping tree with a dome shaped head; it looks good growing in a lawn in parks and gardens.
It remains neat and compact and is generally considered to be resistant to Dutch Elm disease but only because it doesn’t attain the height to attract the infecting beetle.
