Pyrus amygdaliformis var. cuneifolia
A small ornamental Pear with narrow silvery leaves that turn to a pleasing sage green as summer progresses. White flowers are produced in late Spring, followed by small, bitter fruits. A rare tree that will grow in most soil conditions.
Ultimate height 8m (26ft), Spread 5m (16ft).
Pyrus calleryana ‘Bradford’
A medium-sized ornamental Pear with deep green glossy leaves that remain on the tree well into Autumn, eventually turning faintly purple before falling. Abundant white flowers appear in Spring, followed rarely by small brown inedible fruits. Suitable as a solitary tree, with it’s rounded spreading habit, ‘Bradford’ will grow well in most situations.
Ultimate height 12m (40ft), Spread 10m (33ft).
Pyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’
A medium-sized ornamental Pear with glossy green leaves, abundant white flowers, and a pleasing wine glass shaped crown. Pyrus ‘Chanticleer’ is an extremely useful tree for screening in a garden situation, as not only is it one of the first trees to come into leaf in early Spring, but it will hold its foliage well into the late Autumn when the leaves turn a pleasing red, orange and yellow before falling. Tolerant of poor soil conditions, and with its compact upright form, Pyrus ‘Chanticleer’ is a real winner for almost all situations.
Ultimate height 10m (33ft), Spread 5m (16ft).
Pyrus communis ‘Beech Hill’ (Beech Hill Pear)
A small and undemanding cultivar of common pear with a narrow upright crown. Bundles of pure white flowers bloom profusely in Spring, along with glossy green oval-shaped leaves which turn a pleasing red, orange and yellow in the Autumn. Edible, fairly tasteless fruits form in late Summer, weighing down the branches before they too fall in Autumn along with the leaves. Free-draining neutral soils with a good nutrient content will give best results with this tree.
Ultimate height 8m (26ft), Spread 4m (13ft).
Pyrus eleagnifolia ‘Silver Sails’
A small ornamental Pear with attractive greenish-silver, delicately hairy leaves and an upright, slightly spreading habit. Clusters of large white flowers with interesting red anthers appear in late March and April, becoming small yellow-green ornamental fruit in the Autumn. This ornamental pear is drought tolerant and likes full sun. It will tolerate most soil types as long as it is free-draining.
Ultimate height 6m (20ft), Spread 5m (16ft).
Pyrus nivalis (Snow Pear)
A small tree with a round, loose crown. Robust, vertical branches bear oval leaves which are initially covered in velvety white hairs but soon become a glossy green, retaining their soft white underside. Clusters of white flowers appear in Spring, at the same time as the foliage, turning to yellowish green bitter fruits in late Summer, whilst the leaves change to a stunning deep red. Pyrus nivalis works particularly well as a solitary tree, and will grow well in most sunny situations.
Ultimate height 8m (26ft), Spread 6m (20ft).
Pyrus salicifolia ‘Pendula’ (Silver-leaved Weeping Pear)
Broadly weeping, with a dome-shaped crown and silvery grey bark, this small and decorative tree is ideal for an urban garden. A profuse ‘cloud’ of pure white flowers create a beautiful display during April and May, going on to form green pear shaped fruits which are purely ornamental in the late Summer. Narrow willow-like leaves are grey-green in colour with velvety hair on their upper side, remaining on the tree until late Autumn. Best grown in full sun, they will tolerate most well-drained soils.
Ultimate height 4m (13ft), Spread 4m (13ft).
