This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April and May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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.
