A superb, upright ornamental pear introduction with a dense habit and attractive foliage. Excellent for sites where lateral space is restricted, its tough disposition and aesthetic attributes combine to make for a wonderfully versatile tree be it for home gardens or streets and public areas.
Narrowly conical, dense habitate.
Lustrous dark green leaves that turn gold, plum and burgundy in autumn.
Masses of white flowers produced in large corymbs in spring. Small, dull gold to russet coloured fruit. Inedible.
Greyish-brown and lightly furrowed bark.
Tolerates a wide range of site conditions including quite dry conditions, slightly alkaline soils and air pollution. Able to handle intermittently wet, heavy soils. Best in full sun. Less susceptible to wind damage than many other Pyrus cultivars. Currently one of the most widely planted ornamental pears in the USA and becoming increasingly popular in Australia.
