Pyrus ussuriensis

Foliage Deciduous
Form Horizontal Branching
Mature Size 9 x 7m grafted
Family Rosaceae
Manchurian Flowering Pear

This Manchurian Pear is a very popular selection largely due to the brilliant display of colour in Autumn. The dark green foliage is oval in shape with serrated edges and the onset of Autumn sees this leaves turning to a rich, dark red. Wider spreading than the 'Capital' or 'Cleveland Select', this form has a dense, rounded habit maturing to be a broad, medium-sized tree. Very early flowering, dark brown buds begin to open revealing a light pink colour before bursting into a beautiful spring show of white flowers. Small fruits follow the flowers, and although they are generally unpalatable to humans, birds and other wildlife have been known to feed off them.

A great feature tree in all sized gardens. Can be used for street and avenue planting due to its lovely autumn colour and spring blossom.

Prefers a humus rich well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Adapt pretty well to most conditions but care must be taken in excessively hot periods.
