Pyrus nivalis snow pear Ornamental Pear
The ‘Snow Pear’ is a beautiful small, deciduous tree only reaching 5 -8mts in height and 4 – 6mts in width. It produces masses of white flowers at the start of spring, followed by silvery – grey leaves that turn yellow for autumn. It is ideal as a feature/specimen tree and looks great planted in rows and avenues. Because of the foliage colour it gives interest to the landscape all year. ‘Snow Pear’ prefers full sun and well drained, fertile soil however it will tolerate poor soils and cope with dry periods and even wet conditions. Mulch well to retain moisture and keep the roots cool in the summer. Fertilize with slow release fertilizer when leaves first appear in spring.
