Elm flowers. This used to be the classic English hedgerow tree. It has small rounded rough-surfaced leaves which are longer on one side than the other. It has slim twigs with dark buds. The red flowers are produced in late February or March ripening by May, to give seeds with round wings. The tree bark is dark and finely ridged in older trees. Picture taken 15th March 2009
