DECIDUOUS,FASTIGIATE,FULLSUN,FEATURE

This variant has a narrow and columnar growth habit with dark green leaves that turn a reddish-purple in autumn. Masses of small white flowers bloom during Spring. Our Pyrus are grafted for optimal growing performance.

Cultural

Thrives in a full sun position though will still grow well in part shade, is adaptable to most soil conditions including dry and intermittently wet soils. Tolerates air pollution. Adequate moisture in the first year is necessary to ensure that the tree will establish, though once established they are drought tolerant. Fertiliser during spring and prune in winter if required. When planting grafted stock ensure the graft is at least 7cm above soil level, if planted below soil level this can cause fungal and/or root issues.

Landscape Uses

This Pyrus variant is fastigiate (branches are parallel to the main stem), which makes it very suitable for street planting, screening or in areas where there is limited space. Care should be taken to minimise exposure to strong winds.
