Pyrus calleryana 'winterglow'

Size
  • Pyrus calleryana Winter Glow is an attractive ornamental pear that has become a  popular screening plant as it retains its foliage for most of winter.  It is sometimes marketed as an evergreen pear, but more technically it is semi deciduous and retains its leaves only in temperate climates.  It has an upright pyramidal shape with dense foliage which when combined with its year round foliage makes it a great ornamental pear to select as a tall fast growing screen.

    Pyrus calleryana Winter Glow has a medium to fast growth rate reaching 6m x 4m and has glossy rich green leaves with masses of white blossoms in spring. It is spectacular in autumn when foliage gradually changes to bronze-scarlet.

    It is daptable to a wide range of site conditions including quite dry conditions, slightly alkaline soils and air pollution, but is also able to handle intermittently wet, heavy soils. Best in full sun, this is a lovely specimen tree, as well as a great driveway and avenue tree.
