On the sign:
אולמוס נמוך
Ulmus pumila

תפוצה טבעית: דרום סיביר, אפגניסטן, אירן

שים לב לשרידי שלושת הענפים הראשיים בעץ זה שגננים גזמו לפני מספר שנים. הגיזום הפסיק את הזרימה מלמעלה של ההורמון אוקסין, שתפקידו לעכב יצירה של ענפים. את התוצאה אנו רואים לפנינו: ענפים דקים עם הנצה פראית בלתי מבוקרת, בשלושת מקומות הגיזום.

Siberian Elm
Ulmus pumila

Natural range: S. Siberja, Afghanistan, Iran

Note the three places where gardeners, years ago, cut through this tree’s three main limbs. This interrupted the flow, from above of the sprout-inhibiting hormone, auxin. With this inhibition cut off, note the many branches that sprouted from these cuts.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
האם תוכל לגלות 3 מאפיינים ייחודים בעליו של העץ?

[a question]
Can you find three unusual features of this tree’s leaves?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
מאפייני העלים: שולי העלים משוננים; רובם א-סימטריים (אחד הצדדים גדול יותר, בעיקר ליד בסיס העלה); מיקומם על הענף מתחלף לסירוגין. כל מיני האולמוסים הם בעלי שלוש תכונות אלו.

[The Answer to the question]
This tree’s leaves have saw-tooth shaped edges; many are asymmetrical (either left or right side larger, mainly near the leaf base); and their positions on the branch are strictly alternating. All elm species show these three features.
