Celtis julianae - click image
JC Raulston Arboretum. June 2004. This species has wonderful velvety-sandpaper pubescence on both sides of the leaves and on the stems. The regular, darkish leaves
are appealing as is the vase-shaped, arching form of young trees. The tan twigs contrast perfectly with the leaf color. It has less of a weedy look than many of the
familiar species.

'Prairie Pride' - click image
Dawes Arboretum. Summer 2003. If you know this species as a raw thing, the neatness of this clonal habit is remarkable thing. Add in the broom
resistance and one has a winner for those tough, very cold spots. While the leaf is darker green it is not dark in comparison to the best maple
or ash cultivars for example.
