For the first of my plant profiles I chose 'Pyrus calleryana 'Aristocrat'. An ornamental pear tree that has so much to offer from spring blossom to brilliant autumn colour. This tree is quite fast growing and an ideal tree for a town section. I love the way the branches layer making it quite a grand tree. Suitable for use as a specimen tree or street planting this tree is tough and withstands the wind. Pyrus calleryana 'Kea' is very similar and sometimes easier to find. Height approx 6m spread 4m.
