Parrotia persica 'Vanessa'

Over the last two days six new trees have been planted in the college grounds. Graham and Ali spent time this morning planting one of these trees, Parrotia persica 'Vanessa', Persian Ironwood. Supplied in a 65 litre bag, the Parrotia, dormant at the moment, is a medium sized tree, reaching a height of 10-15 metres on maturity. Chosen for its stunning autumn colour it is a welcome addition to the Nuffield Lawn. The other five trees planted were Quercus coccinea (Scarlet Oak), Taxodium distichum (Swamp Cypress), Sequoiadendron giganteum Glauca (Giant Sequoia) and 2 Malus 'Evereste' (Crab Apple).
