This one-of-a-kind tree stands apart from the rest. What you see in the photos are what you get, and there will never be another one like it.

I’m Mizu, the Hokkaido Elm or an Ulmus parvifolia 'Hokkaido.' I'm a Dwarf variation of the elm tree and am known for my dense arrangement of tiny leaves and branches which create a full size plant of tiny dimensions.

I'm native to Japan, Korea and China. I grow very slowly (about 1-2" per year), and show age through my stocky trunk. As I grow older, my bark begins to peel, revealing a corky, underlying tan-and-brown bark.

I do best in full to partial sun conditions. You can water me once every 7-10 days, or more if it’s really hot. Don't over water in winter, and don't let me dry out in the summer sun. To water, submerge my pot in water up to the rim for 20 minutes and let me drain thoroughly. Although I am an indoor tree, keep me away from heaters in the winter. I prefer to stay cool and benefit from good air circulation.


The main aspect of Elm symbolism is strength, wisdom and will & intuition. Native American tribes used infusions from the inner root bark to treat colds, coughs, and fever.
