Elm Circle

The Elm Circle is a pefect place for a picnic or your next function. The focal point of the garden is the weeping winged elm (Ulmus alata 'Lace Parasol'), a signature plant of the JC Raulston Arboretum. Conveniently located near the Necessary (restrooms), the Elm Circle is available for weddings and other outdoor get togethers.

A few of the fine plant specimens located in this garden include:

  • Chinese fringe tree – Chionanthus retusus
  • compact butterfly-bush – Buddleja 'Blue Chip'
  • weeping Texas redbud – Cercis canadensis subsp. texensis 'Traveller'
  • weeping winged elm – Ulmus alata 'Lace Parasol'
