Ulmus ‘Rebona’ is a hybrid originating from a Japanese clone of Ulmus japonica and Ulmus pumila, sharing the same parentage as Ulmus ‘New Horizon’. It possesses identical qualities in terms of robustness and phenology. However, it distinguishes itself by having a more upright grown habit and a narrower form, giving it a tidier appearance. Additionally, it features darker and smaller leaves. Its columnar shape makes it an excellent choice for urban streets and parking areas.

This variety was developed by Professor Smalley and Professor Gueires, of Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, USA, and is completely resistant to Dutch Elm Disease. As a part of the Resista Elms, it is micro-chipped and exclusively grown in the UK by Hillier.
