Haven't posted in a while...here is a 12 inch Zelkova Elm with better fall color than I typically see.

Ooohhhh.....that's nice! Looks like it's starting to get twiggy and full, if that makes sense?!?! Laughing
Thanks for sharing!

It has been in a pot for about ten years and lots of fairly direct sun the last couple of years. I did repot it this Spring and it was protected a bit afterwards. Perhaps more early season sun and may reduce more next year.

I've never defoliated a tree and only seen this done once on a Trident maple.  Can Zelkova be safely defoliated and would that reduce leaf size?

Great tree by the way.

Thanks.

I haven't defoliated this elm, but I have read that they respond well.
