The Pyrus calleryana, also known as the Callery Pear, is a beautifully shaped deciduous tree native to China. With its conic to rounded crown and lustrous dark green leaves that turn brilliant colors in autumn, it is a stunning addition to any landscape. The white, five-petaled flowers have a smell that may not be appealing to everyone but are produced abundantly in early spring before the leaves expand fully. The tree can reach up to 15 to 20 meters in height, and its wood is highly prized for making woodwind instruments and fine furniture. In addition to its aesthetic value, its rootstock is widely used for grafting Bradford and other pear varieties. Learn more about the Pyrus calleryana, including its cultivation information, on plants.usda.gov. Bring a piece of China's beauty into your home with the Callery Pear.
