Chinese Elm Semi Cascade

Post  Michael T on Thu May 20, 2010 2:59 pm

I've been reworking the primary and secondary branch structure for about 5 years. Still a work in progress. A little messy at the moment. Open to suggestions.

Really not sure I like the crossing branch on the cascade, or the (essentially) second apex, but then again not sure it wouldn't look worse without them.

Dorothy,

Thank you. Do you mind if I print and keep that?

It will require me to bring many of the branches down to accomplish that. Most of the branching has an upward sweep now. But, I can probably accomplish what you've shown.

Hi Michael,

Can you comment on how this elm is responding to being grown as a cascade? Do the lower parts struggle?

Thanks,

Andrew

Chinese elms are so vigorous that I can't say any part of it struggles to grow. It's more of a struggle to keep it in check. It shoots literally everywhere nearly all the time. I actually cut off the large pad on the end of the cascade last spring. It was just too thick. The new line has already grown to a point you can't really tell it was done. It's still a bit thin, but I fully expect it to be a convincing new cascade line by the end of this season.

Any recent pics? First I've seen this thread and I really like it. Only thing that bothers me is that the trunk is the same thickness for too long in my opinion.

Same observation here. It also appears like there are two trees in one. I like the tree up to point when it starts to cascade.
