F. W. Parrot, who made the first ascent of Mt. Ararat in 1829, lends his name to this low-branched, round-headed deciduous Iranian native with remarkable landscape merit. In spring, the silver, green and cream-hued smooth bark is complemented by glistening green foliage and in autumn it’s highlighted by radiant gold, rosy-pink and crimson tones. Later, showy red stamens and woolly brown bracts create a reddish haze around bare limbs, crafting a virtual carousel of color and texture. Pest-free Persian Ironwood prefers well-drained soil and detests both overly wet or dry conditions. Grows moderately. 10´ in 6–8 yrs. Large Band.
