Parrotia persica or Persian Irownwood trees are small deciduous trees of spreading habit and suitable for most gardens. The bark on the older trees delightfully flakes, like that of our lovely London Plane trees. Large oval green leaves turn crimson and gold in autumn. The flowers which consist of clusters of crimson stamens are born on bare branches in late winter and early spring. Buds can be damaged by a hard frost.
Fully hardy, Parrotia requires full sun and likes fertile, moist but well-drained soil. It is lime-tolerant, and will even grow on chalk but usually colours best in acid soil. No special care is required but they will benefit from weed, mulch, and compost in spring.
Vanessa ~ Smaller version is suitable for most gardens.
Native to Iran and the Caucasus
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
