A beautiful ornamental for the Wyoming landscape and the hardiest of all pear trees. Perfect as a stand-alone specimen or for pollinating nearby fruiting pears. Provides lovely masses of large white blossoms in the spring and gorgeous glossy green foliage in the summer. Leaves take on a red to purple color in the fall. The small yellowish-green fruit are savored by wildlife. The Ussurian pear is particularly great as a pollinator for “Golden Spice” fruiting pears.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
