A Unique & Petite Landscaping Tree: The Weeping Persian Ironwood

  • Brilliant Fall Color
  • Red Flower Before Foliage
  • Dense Green Foliage
  • Umbrella Form
  • Easy to Care For

What does the Weeping Persian Ironwood (Parrotia persica 'Pendula') have to be sad about? Not much. This lovely and quirky tree has a unique form and offers four seasons of excitement.

The Weeping Persian Ironwood is a compact tree that thrives in the urban landscape and is often considered a model of health (take note: gardeners with brown thumbs will struggle to kill this one).

The first thing you will notice is the Weeping Persian Ironwood's unique branching habit. As its name implies, its branches grow outward and arch downward, creating a fun gumdrop form.

The highlight of the Weeping Persian Ironwood's spring is petite red flowers that announce the coming of its broad foliage.

This lovely tree is a feast of green leaves with violet margins in spring and summer, and when fall arrives, it goes through a dramatic wardrobe change as its large, bright green, glossy leaves blush to a deep yellow then brilliant red.

Many people prefer the in-between phase of the Weeping Persian Ironwood's color change since each leaf takes its own path to red as the margins of the leaves redden more quickly and the centers remain green then slowly drift into a bright yellow.

The Weeping Persian Ironwood also creates quite the spectacle in winter with its fun umbrella form.

You will want to plant your Weeping Persian Ironwood where you can admire it all year long. It looks great as an anchor plant or foundation accent. It is also a great option for hills and side yards.

If you love one-of-a-kind trees and shrubs, the Weeping Persian Ironwood will steal your heart. Don't find yourself weeping because you waited too long to order. Buy your Weeping Persian Ironwood while it's in stock
