Parrotia persica 'Golden Belltower'
Size: 2-3 feet
Growth Habit: narrow column
USDA Zone: 5-8
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: adaptable over a wide range of soil types
Comments: A newly available columnar Parrotia with golden-yellow leaves turning to the familiar shades of purple, orange, and red in the fall. Will eventually reach 30 feet tall, but only 10 feet wide. Bark will also exfoliate over time revealing pink tones underneath. A superior selection found by Ken Christianson in Washington.
