Parrotia persica 'Vanessa'

Tight Upright Persian Ironwood

Zones 5-9

Full Sun to Part Shade


'Vanessa' is a gorgeous form of Persian Ironwood with a tighter and dense habit that has branches that reach more upward than the typical species. In the early spring, small red flowers often appear before the leaves. The green leaves emerge in the early spring having a nice purple-red border. This bronzes, then matures to green by late spring. In the fall, 'Vanessa' has a bright orange to red fall color. The bark provides an additional winter interest with grey. tan, and brown flaking bark. 'Vanessa' may reach 25 ft in height by 12-15 ft in width in 15 years.
