F. W. Parrot, who made the first ascent of Mt. Ararat in 1829, lends his name to this low branched, round headed, deciduous Persian native with tremendous landscape value. In spring, the silver, green and cream-colored smooth bark is complemented by lustrous green foliage and in autumn it’s highlighted by exquisite gold, rosy pink and crimson tones. Later, showy red stamens and wooly brown bracts create a reddish haze around bare limbs, making 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 68 yrs. Large Band.

Blooms March.

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