Up until now, the Persian Ironwood has been rarely available in Atlantic Canada, which is a shame. This Witch Hazel relative has something to offer in every season of the year; patterned exfoliating bark in winter, curious petal-less flowers in early spring, clean trouble free foliage in summer, which takes on exceptional colour in fall. 'Golden Bell Tower' was selected for its reliably columnar form, and beautiful gold and apricot toned fall foliage.
