Athena® has the most unusual branching of any of the Lacebark cultivars. It occurred to us the broad rainbow outline is perfectly suited for a multi-stem specimen. We love our improved round-headed Athena® Classic Elm with its tapered tracery of tidy branches and tight head. The decorative patchwork bark is not only good-looking, it is tough and resistant to early frost.
