Parrotia Persica

Parrotia persica, commonly known as the Persian ironwood, is an exquisite deciduous tree renowned for its striking beauty. Originating from the woodlands of Iran, Turkey, and Armenia, this tree is prized for its stunning display throughout the seasons.

Parrotia persica bursts into life in spring with small, bright red flowers that emerge before the leaves. Its foliage then unfurls into a kaleidoscope of colours, ranging from vibrant green to deep purple, often with splashes of orange and red. This riot of colours intensifies in autumn when the leaves transform into a breathtaking array of fiery reds, oranges, and yellows, creating a spectacle of autumnal beauty.

The bark of Parrotia persica is another remarkable feature, offering year-round interest. It exfoliates to reveal patches of green, cream, and grey, adding a mosaic-like pattern to the tree’s trunk.

Growing up to 8 meters with a rounded shape, this tree is a favourite in landscapes where its multi-season interest can be fully appreciated. Its tolerance to urban conditions makes it a versatile choice for parks, gardens, and even street plantings. Gardeners and nature enthusiasts cherish Parrotia persica for its resilience, ornamental value, and the joy it brings with its ever-changing, picturesque display throughout the year.
