Ulmus glabra 'Horizontalis'
Ulmus glabra 'Horizontalis', common name Weeping Scotch elm, umbrella tree, weeping Wych Elm or Horizontal elm, was discovered in a Perth (Scotland) nursery circa 1816. The tree was originally identified as 'Pendula' by the Loddiges family of plant collectors and nurserymen in London in their catalogue of 1836, a name adopted by John Claudius Loudon (a Scottish botanist) two years later in Arboretum et Fruticetum Britannicum, 3: 1398, 1838, but later was replaced by the name 'Horizontalis'. 'Horizontalis' has branches that extend out horizontally with weeping branchlets. It is usually grafted onto a tall understock of Ulmus glabra to effectively display its weeping habit. The tree can eventually grow to a height of 20 metres with a similar spread. It can be distinguished from the related Camperdown Elm by its more spreading and flattened canopy and much larger mature size.
