Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Quebec Poplar

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.

It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, and is also an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.

A hybrid of Simon's Poplar and Balsam Poplar, Quebec Poplar is a fast-growing deciduous tree. This particular selection was one of the finalists for the Quebec Ministry of Forest's Hybrid Poplar breeding program.

It is useful for quickly establishing a privacy screen or as part of a shelterbelt, and prefers moist soil. Disease resistance is likely high as is cold hardiness.

Quebec is a province with a strong forestry sector and we are excited to be offering this variety.
