Camperdown Elm, Albion Michigan
Legend of the Campdown Elm in
Albion, Michigan

This Camperdown Elm, located in the back yard of Albion Heritage Bed and Breakfast in Albion Michigan was painted in all four seasons by Michigan artist Maggie LaNoue.

This unique type of tree was first created in 1835 by a gardener at the Camperdown House in Dundee, Scotland.

He noticed a mutant contorted branch growing along the ground and grafted it to the trunk of a Wych Elm. Every Camperdown Elm in the world is from a cutting taken from that original mutant cutting and is usually grafted on a Wych elm trunk. The trees cannot reproduce from seed.

Camperdown Elms satisfied a mid-Victorian passion for curiosities and were planted as a “rarity” in elite gardens, often as memorials. There is a Camperdown Elm Tree next to the Sledding Hill in Victory Park, along side Hannah Street, in a special cutout garden on the hillside by the road.
