I bought this ch elm 14 yrs ago for $25 when it was considered a reject by the seller. It was in the corner with some other rejects but caught my eye for some reason. The foliage was quite sparse at the time and didn't have a whole lot going for it. Many of you might have seen this elm posted from time to time but with a different front. I'm now using the back as the front and will do so from now on as I feel that the design is exactly what I'm looking for.
