Tree Pyrus nivalis Snow Pear

 

 

 

 
Description Commonly known as the Snow Pear, this form of Pyrus sets itself apart from the rest with its main point of difference being the slightly glaucous foliage which gives the tree a soft, silvery green appearance when in leaf. As well as this, come Autumn, as with other forms of Pyrus, the foliage puts on a vibrant show of bright red colour. The flowers are small and white and may be followed by small fruits which have a mild, sour taste. This tree has a well-balanced structure and is easy to manage having a straight trunk. The grey-green leaf colour lends itself well to adding contrast and interest amongst other plants.
