A very rare, hardy, ornamental tree or large shrub from Sicily, only recently found and now considered threatened with extinction in the wild, considered to be 'Critically Endangered' by the IUCN. Related to elms, Zelkova sicula have most pretty oval leaves 1-5 cm across and will form a lovely ornamental plant. Very little is known about this plant which was first discovered in 1991 and which, due to persistent grazing by goats, has only rarely been seen to flower in the wild.
