Pyrus Salicifolia Pendula - Weeping Silver Pear also known as Willow Leaf Pear is such an elegant little tree, it is particularly suited to urban town gardens (pollution tolerant), where space is at a premium, they are very easy to grow and an asset to most gardens.
The Weeping Silver Pear is a deciduous, ornamental fruit tree, with a beautiful pendulous shape. Our trees are grown as full standards and these are perfect as a specimen tree, they will form a dome shaped crown with a pendulous habit. The leaves are an attractive grey / green spear shape, not dissimilar to willow or olive leaves. Pyrus Salicifolia Pendula forms clusters of pure white flowers with small black stamens. The profuse 'cloud' of flowers creates a beautiful display during April and May, these then go on to form green pear shaped fruits which are purely ornamental. Although not culinary pears, these fruits do provide a valuable food source for visiting birds.
Weeping Silver Pear trees are highly ornamental, their unusual greyish foliage, pretty flowers and prolific fruits are a valuable contrast with the deepest green shrubs and trees and are a coveted addition to a white garden theme. Pyrus Salicifolia Pendula is relatively slow growing variety and our quality, taller trees provide a good level of maturity. These trees will eventually reach a height and breadth of circa 4 metres. Grow them in full sun, they will tolerate most well-drained soils. Pyrus Salicifolia Pendula has been awarded the RHS AGM, the Award of Garden Merit, a good sign it will perform well in most UK gardens.
