In autumn, this deciduous tree is a breathtaking sight, as its large, smooth, wavy-edged leaves turn brilliant yellow, then orange and finally blaze fiery red before falling. In late winter and early spring, insignificant, spidery, red flowers appear before the leaves. Persion ironwood is a spreading tree, with a short trunk and peeling grey and fawn bark. As it normally has multiple stems, it is best grown as a large shrub in the border or in an open woodland garden. It can get very big, so it is best suited to larger gardens.Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
