Cleveland Pear
Pyrus calleryana

Plant Description - The Cleveland Pear, Pyrus calleryana, is a deciduous flowering pear without the splitting or breaking problems that plague the Bradford Pear. The Cleveland Pear treats us with a continuous parade of spectacular color throughout the growing season. Starting in the early spring with a mass of delicate snowy white blossoms, the Cleveland Pear then brings us the spring and summer glossy dark green foliage. The fall brings a change from glossy dark green to an attractive vibrant wine red color foliage. The Cleveland Pear is a pyramidal tree with vertical branching and rapid growth. Its leaves are broader than the Bradford Pear, and the Cleveland Pear is less susceptible to late freezes.

Thank You for your business. Please email or call to place orders greater than one hundred trees.

Planting Instructions - Dig a hole three times the diameter of the root system, with a depth no deeper than the original soil line on trunk. Break up the soil to the finest consistency possible. Place plant in hole and fill, compacting the fill dirt. Water the plant heavily to seal soil around the roots and remove air pockets. Fertilize according to the recommendation of your local agriculture extension agents, or fertilize based on your own knowledge and experience.
