Pyrus nivalis

Foliage Deciduous
Form Round
Mature Size 8 x 5m
Family Rosaceae
Snow Pear

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.

A notable inclusion in any garden with a bit of width. Being used more and more in streetscapes due to its height, shape and reliable performance. Fantastic autumn colour.

Prefers a moist, humus rich soil in a sunny position. Can tolerate most conditions but mulching can help retain water during the warmer periods of the year.
