Parrotia, Persian

Parrotia persica
Parrotia persica has one of the most beautiful foliage displays, in addition to year-round eye appeal. Reddish-purple when unfolding in spring, the leaves are a lustrous dark green in summer, and yellow to orange or scarlet in fall. Leaves hold their color for a long period. Older branches and trunks develop an exfoliating gray, green, white, and brown color that is a welcome asset in the winter garden.It is native to the harsh environments of northern Iran and southern Azerbaijan and also thrives in difficult growing conditions. It grows successfully in Zones 4 to 8 and tolerates sun and partial shade. 40-50' high and 20-30' wide.
