Any help in locating "slippery elm" would greatly be appreciated...

And if you know what it's called in Spanish...better yet...:)

Elm, in Spanish, is 'Olmo'.

From wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulmus_rubra the binomial name for the slippery elm is 'ulmus rubra'. Maybe with that information you can ask in the botanical garden (in front of the BA zoo) if they know what it's called in Spanish and where to find it (they usually are helpful).

Hello

The translation I found is "olmo rojo" used as herb for digestion/bowels problems.

There is quite a good herb shop near the corner of Rivadavia and Larea in Once that may well have it.
