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.
Size: 15' 0" – 35' 0" high x 15' 0" – 30' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
