Also known as the Umbrella Elm or Weeping elm, this tree originated from a seedling at Camperdown House, near Dundee Scotland.  It is in fact a cultivar of the Scotch elm.

The leaves show a high degree of asymmetry at the base and are dark green in colour.  The drooping branches have made it attractive as a small-scale landscape tree.
