Desired quantity:    

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 around 10m (30ft).

Also known as Pendulous Weeping Pear Tree, Weeping Silver Pear or "that lovely tree over there!" 

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 and 2.0m  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. Message card included at no additional cost if required.

Pyrus Salicofolia Sooty Mould 
When the weather is warm and wet at the same time, this provides the perfect environment for sooty mould to make an appearance. You will notice black or dark brown fungal growth on the upper leaf surfaces. It can be between a fine sooty or powdery layer to a thick sheet. This does not harm the tree other than maybe make it a little self conscious when guests come round so if your green foundation makeup has gone missing, probably been taken by your Weeping Pear tree to hide fungus issues.

Prevention is your best approach by keeping moisture levels under control. This can be done by keeping the grass short or any other water trapping foliage trimmed and by letting in as much air and sun into the garden as possible to dry out the rains. Basically moisture that hangs around is a big part of the problem. Watering the base of the tree and not the foliage is probably the biggest measure you can take. 

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All 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.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
