Weeping Willow Leaved Pear trees offer a delightful colour palette with grey-green foliage and white flowers. The leaves are narrow and have a distinct silver downy underside that glistens in the sunlight. Enhancing the silver tones are masses of single white flowers that appear in April and May. The flowers attract bees, butterflies and pollinating insects, bringing movement into your garden. The leaves turn to a bronze-green in autumn before falling in the winter. Brown green fruits attract birds, adding sound to your garden setting.
Pyrus salicifolia 'Pendula' is a small tree with a weeping habit and will reach heights of 4m with a spread of 3m in a 20 year period. The branches are pendulous and tend to droop downwards towards the ground. The tree can be pruned to an umbrella shape if desired or can be left to grow wild.
Being fully hardy, it will grow in full sun or partial shade. Plant your Weeping Willow Leaved Pear tree in well-drained, moist fertile soil for best results. It will also cope with pollution and alkaline soils, making it ideal for urban gardens.
If you are looking for something different, the silvery-blue tones of this stunning tree will create a unique effect in a small garden or on a patio. You can also plant it next to a contrasting Weeping Spring Cherry tree which offers pink blossoms, highlighting both the pink and the white flowers.
