  • Description:

    PYRUS

    Ornamental pears are grown for their profuse late-winter or early-spring show of white flowers and their lustrous leaves. Not at their best in shallow soils, they’re otherwise unfussy, even growing well in heavy clay. Most are subject to fireblight. Fruiting pears are described under Pear, Asian and Pear, European.

    Pyrus ussuriensis

    Dense, rounded tree to 15–40 ft. tall, 15–25 ft.wide. Roundish, 2–4-in., glossy bright green leaves turn red or purple in fall. Large spring flowers are followed by tiny, hard, inedible fruit. This is a good substitute for callery pear (Pyrus calleryana) in cold zones.
