The Autumn Blaze Pear, 'Pyrus calleryana 'Autumn Blaze', is a cultivar with a distinct beautiful rounded, spreading habit that distinguishes it from other pears.

The most cold-hardy of Calleryana cultivars, it has white flowers in spring, dark glossy foliage, and brilliant red fall color. Autumn Blaze's spectacular crimson fall color defoliates by mid-October, allowing Autumn transplanting.

It prefers moist, well-drained soils of average fertility in full sun, but is adaptable to poor soils, compacted soils, dry soils, and heat.

Its round pome fruit is not ornamentally significant and is covered in russet dots that are olive-brown to tan color. This three season tree (spring flowers, fall color and unique winter habit) is used for a great specimen street tree, excellent for small residential landscapes, a screen, or for mass groupings.

These are the three best reasons for planting Autumn Blaze Pear: in the spring the abundant white blooms cover this Flowering Pear, in the fall the tree is a blaze of red and orange, and last but not least, you can count on its cold hardiness!

* Rounded habit

* Adaptable

* Blazing red fall color
