Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Kentucky Coffeetree

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.

The Kentucky Coffeetree has the largest leaves of any native tree in North America! In the summer, its large green canopy provides shade. While in the winter, its leathery bean pods act as a decorative element against the sky as they rattle in the wind. Beautiful year-round, this tree is an elegant addition to any landscape.
