Quick Overview:

Persian Spire™ Persian ironwood (Parrotia persica ‘JLColumnar’): A cultivar with an upright-oval form; 25 feet high by 10 feet wide. New leaves emerge purple and retain some purple tint throughout summer. A strongly upright form of the species that has finer texture yet is quite durable. From its exfoliating gray and tan bark to its remarkable kaleidoscope of leaf color, this tree provides beauty all year long. Excellent fall color (orange, red and yellow).

Description
