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.
Flowers: White flowers, very early in spring.
Leaves: Deciduous, shiny and green, just like a pear tree.
Autumn colour: Bright red, orange and yellow.
Ultimate height: 14m
Uses: Screening as well as early spring flower display, strong narrow shape and late autumn colouring.
