    This narrowly conical ornamental pear is smothered in sprays of pure white flowers in April and May, followed by spherical brown fruit. The glossy, dark green leaves turn marvellous shades of purple and scarlet in autumn and are retained until winter. An excellent specimen tree for small urban gardens, it tolerates pollution and alkaline soils.

  • Garden care: In late winter or early spring remove misplaced or crossing branches to build up a healthy, permanent framework.
