Persian Spire Ironwood
Parrotia persica 'JLColumnar'
Unique for both its form and fine texture, this strongly upright tree is a colorful choice for screening and street plantings. Refined foliage emerges purple and matures to green with purple tinted margins that linger into the summer months. Fall color is bright and long lasting.
Parrotia trees are fairly easy to grow and adapt to most growing conditions.
A great small street tree for narrow planting strips.
