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.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen has a compact and columnar branching structure that makes it a great privacy screen for small yards. You'll notice that the old and new growth have contrasting colors of green, giving this tree an attractive and unique appearance.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen is more disease resistant, columnar, and typically leafs out earlier than Swedish Aspen.
