Lutece® name was given in order to thanks Parks and Gardens
Services of Paris for taking care of an experimentation plot in
Vincennes wood. Its bark is smooth. Its asymmetric and coarse
leaves look like those of the common elm. It’s simple to plant
it in rows thanks to its upright posture. It will be beautiful
alone and would enhance your garden or park. It can also be
planted in hedging farmland for the happiness of our countryside,
because it was totally disappeared since 1970. At least,
grows up quickly, as more of them love it
