Parrotia persica (Persian Ironwood)
The Parrotia persica is a tiny tree that thrives in urban settings. The bark can be found in a variety of colours, including brown, grey, green, and white. It peels off in a pleasing manner. The leaves are round in shape and have wavy edges. With the spring, they first emerge in a reddish hue. They're becoming green in the summer. The leaves become crimson, yellow, and orange before falling off in the autumn.
This tree's blooms are unfinished and arrive before the leaves. They don't have petals, and the deep crimson portions that appear in late winter are stamen clusters. Each bloom develops into a split-in-two capsule. One seed is held on each side.
