Flowering Pear | Drought Tolerant Trees
The Flowering Ornamental Pear (Pyrus calleryana) is ideal if you’re trying to achieve a strong, seasonal color. Flowering Pear Trees keep their deep green foliage for most of the year along with those beautiful white flowers from spring to summer. Perhaps the most desirable aspect is the fiery-red fall color that Flowering Pear Trees gain in the fall.
