This Weeping Pear tree (Pyrus salicifolia 'Pendula') is a rather petite, spreading tree with the most graceful, weeping branches coupled with silvery grey, long, almost willow shaped leaves. During spring, this tree is cloaked in creamy coloured flowers. Like Chanticleer, our other ornamental pear, the pears are inedible. An ideal specimen tree for smaller town gardens, in particular those based on a white or grey colour scheme, it is pollution tolerant and can cope with alkaline soils. Expect a final height of 10m (30ft).
As with most weeping trees, you can determine final height by allowing the tree to grow to the height you require and then cut the main trunk/stem. If you are going to restrict growth by keeping it in the pot and then planting it, you need to remember to feed every year. The larger the pot, the larger the tree will grow.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5m (5ft) and 1.8m (6ft) in a 12L container, which means that the tree has an already established root system and therefore this tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Ornamental Tree ToppingAll ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.
