Flowering Pear trees are also known as Callery pears, fruitless pear trees, ornamental pear trees, and Pyrus calleryana (botanical name). Flowering pear trees are easy to grow and care for, they do well in a wide variety of soils, and they put on a flower display that few other trees can match. Each spring, these trees cover themselves in a willowy blanket of white. Flowering pear trees also display wonderful fall leaf colors and shiny, deep green, attractive leaves in spring and summer.
Besides the beautiful flower display, these trees are often used for screening and shade, along with being a popular ornamental tree with a large canopy. The flowering pear features fragrant, white flowers in spring, and produces small, nonedible fruits in summer. The flowering pear tree loves full sunshine and grows quickly to 40 feet. The narrow shape makes it versatile, and the tree is adapted to hot and dry conditions, withstands air pollution, and is resistant to fire blight.
The flowering pear is a great choice for urban gardens and will bring natural beauty to the cityscape.
