In spring they bear an impressive display of white blossom which is borne in long racemes over the entire tree. The flowers are followed by small fruits fruits, which are often followed with striking autumn leaf colour. Pyrus makes a good specimen tree or planted in a line as a screen. It grows best in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Tolerates atmospheric pollution well so good for urban areas. Average height 35ft.
