Persian Ironwood Tree

Persian Ironwood Tree

Parrotia persica

Usually a shrub with branches starting at ground level, growing to become a medium-large tree with a spreading, irregular branching pattern.

Sometimes also cultivated as a high stemmed tree. This is especially decorative in more mature trees.  

The main value is the autumn colours of red, yellow and purple. Mainly older specimens bloom. The flowers are about 2 cm big and are striking due to the bright red anthers.

The bare shrub is spectacular when in full bloom. After flowering, small spiked brown fruit appears.
