The Redspire Flowering Pear, 'Pyrus calleryana "Redspire", produces beautiful large white flowers in early spring. The flowers are larger than Bradford or Aristocrat flowering pears.
The leaves emerge as red/purple and then turn a glossy green with a red tinge. The leaves turn to a yellow/orange color for an awesome fall display.
The Redspire Flowering Pear develops small, pea sized reddish fruits that are attractive to birds and other wildlife. The fruits are quite persistent and may hang for up to a year.
This tree has many uses including lawns, buffer strips, median strip plantings, small shade tree, specimen and as a residential street tree.
The Redspire provides 3 seasons of interest: spring flowers, glossy summer foliage and spectacular fall color. It is tolerant of pollution, compacted soils, restricted rooting areas, drought and heat.
