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.

Royal Frost Birch is a beautiful, cold hardy tree. It features burgundy-red-purple foliage, turning a showy yellow-orange-red in fall. The attractive white bark is striking on a winter landscape.

Royal Frost Birch loves moisture. To meet this trees' moisture needs, try applying bark mulch over the root system. Keep in mind that this variety only likes to be pruned in summer to avoid “bleeding” sap.

The Royal Frost cultivar is popular for its upright pyramidal growth habit and fuller purple foliage.
