<i>Ulmus</i> × <i>hollandica</i> Canadian Giant Elm cultivar

The elm cultivar Ulmus × hollandica 'Canadian Giant', the 'Canadensis' of nurseries, was mentioned as Ulmus montanaBauh. var. 'Giant' by Lindley in A synopsis of the British Flora; arranged according to the Natural Orders (1829), without description. At the time, the taxon Ulmus montana was used both for Wych Elm cultivars and for those of Ulmus × hollandica. Lindley appeared to distinguish "the Giant elm" from "the Chichester elm", while in Australia, where it was introduced in the late 19th century, Ulmus montana 'Canadian Giant' was distinguished from Huntingdon Elm. These pairings suggest that 'Canadian Giant' may have been a 'Vegeta'-type hybrid, rather than a wych cultivar, though possibly not synonymous with 'Vegeta' or 'Cicestria'.
