Botanical name: Parrotia persicaCommon names: Persian parrotia tree, Persian ironweed, Persian ironwood USDA zones: 4-9Water requirement: Regular; do not overwater Sun requirement: Full to partialMature size: 20-40’ height and spreadTolerances: Urban conditions, drought, heat, cold, windHow to use it. Low spreading branches and upright form make this tree perfect as a focal specimen. Prune and train Parrotia to create a formal and more upright structure, or let the tree’s natural multi-stemmed and low branching habit grow out and create the perfect centerpiece to any woodland landscape. Parrotia makes a nice patio tree, and its proportions provide great shade. Since it can handle urban conditions, consider Parrotia as the street trees used to line your front yard, allowing passersby to admire its transitions through the seasons for many years to come.

all is prime time to witness a showstopping display of colors contending with even the most picturesque of sunsets. It’s a shame this spectacle usually drops into months of dormancy that can be as visually stimulating as watching paint dry. The Persian ironwood (Parrotia persica), however, will continue to turn heads come winter. With vivid fall color, winter blooming flowers and stunning summer foliage, there is hardly a moment you don't appreciate this tree. "It has some of the best fall color around," notes landscape architect Christopher Yates. "The form of the tree is gorgeous" even without its leaves.
