Buy Parrotia persica Persian Spire ('JLPN01') (PBR) Persian ironwood: New colourful Parrotia perfect for small gardens and patios

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil, preferably acidic
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to February
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Unlike other ironwoods this new form has a narrow, upright profile, and as it doesn't get too big, it's perfect for smaller gardens or large patio pots where it will offer interest throughout the year. The foliage is particularly attractive, and emerges rich purple in spring, before changing to a rich dark green with a purple fringe in summer. As the temperatures start to dip in autumn they transform again, this time turning a blaze of yellow, orange and red before they drop to reveal the grey and fawn bark. Look closely in late winter and early spring and you may spot tiny spidery red flowers, which appear before the leaves and the cycle begins all over again.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.

What a fantastic plant,


I was looking for a replacement for a standard rose that had got too big. It needed to be fairly compact but tall as there isn t so much space in the bed where it is going to go. I saw this and was blown away. The leaves are as pretty as they look on the picture. It has an upright habit growing only 1m in width but can reach 3 m in height. The autumn colours sound amazing and then it has interesting bark in the winter. I have only just received it and it is a new cultivar but it seems to have every thing.
