The elm cultivar Charisma
was derived from a crossing of two hybrids grown at the Morton Arboretum
. Charisma is similar in stature to the American Elm
, and has glossy, deep-green foliage. It is resistant to Dutch elm disease
, and featured in the elm trials
conducted by Northern Arizona University
in eastern Arizona, where its performance went largely unremarked.
