Parrotia Blooming

Like any good member of the Hamamelidaceae family, the Parrotia tree has a lovely winter bloom.  It’s so small and often high up in the tree that it often goes unnoticed.  Thanks to a keen student observation, we were able to enjoy this surprising little dash of color in our school arboretum this month. Parrotia persica is an all-around good tree.  Glossy green summer leaves, blazing autumn color and a fucshia pink bloom in February.  Another favorite (there are so many….)
