Triumph Elm matures to a beautiful tree, but at a young age in the nursery it takes a lot of work to get it to that point. Patience and consistency are necessary in growing any Elm, especially Triumph. This variety responds well to staking as long as you pay attention to it and stay ahead of its new growth.
