Ulmus thomasii

Common name: Winged Elm

Native plant

An interesting species that is almost common in the southern half of the state. Seeds well into disturbed areas and makes a great pioneer species to get habitat established on hard to plant sites. I find it to be a surprisingly elegant, with a vase like growth form that grows quickly. There are also many advantages to adding it to restoration plantings as there are many moth and butterfly species that rely on elm and in turn are eaten by song birds.
