Frontier Elm is a small, fast-growing deciduous tree with an upright pyramidal crown and a fluted exfoliating trunk.  The narrow shiny dark green leaves have small teeth turn an attractive reddish-purple in fall.  Insignificant fall flowers give way to papery wing-like seed pods that mature mid-fall.  Grows best with full sun and rich well-drained soils.  Frontier has good resistance to dutch elm disease, elm yellows,  and elm leaf beetles.  Can tolerate both dry and wet sites.
