    This small, spreading weeping pear has delicate, weeping branches and silver grey, willow-like foliage. In April and May it's covered in creamy white flowers, followed by inedible green fruit. An ideal specimen tree for small urban gardens, particularly those based on a white or grey colour scheme, it copes well with pollution and alkaline soils.

  • Garden care: In late winter or early spring remove misplaced or crossing branches to build up a healthy, permanent framework.
  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
