About Camperdown Elm at OSU's Landscape Plants site

  • Native to Camperdown House near Dundee, Scotland. Found circa 1850 as a seedling creeping along the ground, a “sport” of the Wych elm. All Camperdown elms in the world came from this sport. Most trees are grafted onto understock at about 6-8’ above ground.

  • Height can reach 30’.

  • Leaves are 6-8” long, 4-6” broad, double-toothed to a sharp point, base unequal, and rough on top.

  • Flowers and seeds are similar to Wych elm.

  • Fairly rare in Portland.
