Arborist Thoughts

  • One of the best specimen trees available, interesting bark, attractive foliage, interesting flowers, showy fall color and excellent disease/pest resistance make this a tree a must have for all landscapes.
  • Parrotia is often grown as a multi-stemmed large shrub but single stem more traditional tree form cultivated varieties like ‘Vanessa’ and ‘Red Bull’ are becoming readily available and would make a great street tree.
