This narrow, upright tree has almost everything a plant can offer; a strong, architectural shape, an impressive display of early spring flowers, plus a spectacular autumn colour which comes very late in the season, leaving the last leaves on sometimes up until just before Christmas!

In addition, as a double flowering pear tree, it does not bear fruit, removing the problem of rotten produce underneath the tree.
