Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Majestic Magenta Phlox

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 Majestic Magenta is a compact ground cover plant that blooms with small, rich magenta flowers in early to mid spring. In spring expect an abundance of these star-shaped flowers.

The Majestic Magenta attracts the attention of birds and butterflies and this plant is popular for it’s low maintenance and salt-tolerance.
