Description
Prized for their exceptional coloured foliage, Persian Ironwoods are generally too large for the average garden. Parrotia persica 'Persian Spire' changes all that, with a neat columnar habit that is dwarf enough to be grown in a large patio pot! Young foliage emerges rich purple and gradually matures to bright green with a dark burgundy margin. As autumn progresses, the leaves turn to glowing shades of red, gold and orange creating an unmissable focal point in the garden. This dwarf variety makes a spectacular specimen tree for smaller gardens and narrow borders. Height: 3m (10’). Spread: 1m (3’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
