Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
no image

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.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Named after its white, fluffy seeds with cottony hairs, the Black Cottonwood is the largest of the North American poplars.

The Black Cottonwood's trunk has a straight growth pattern as well as sticky, fragrant buds.

Historically, the waxy resin inside these buds have been used by First Nations people to treat sore throats, coughs and lung infections.

Black Cottonwoods need ample moisture and nutrients to grow successfully and are typically found west of the Rocky Mountains.
