European Mountain Ash
Ussurian Pear (Siberian)

European Mountain Ash is an attractive, ornamental tree. This medium-sized tree produces tiny white-yellow flowers in the spring and decorative clusters of small red/orange berries in the summer. Its bitter fruit is often used to make Rowan Jelly, is a traditional garnish for wild game and venison. Ideal for residential lots, European Mountain Ash will attracts birds to your property.

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

Note: the fruit produced by this pear is rather mealy and not a choice edible. It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, but is an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.
