Cleveland Select Flowering Pear
Pyrus calleryana 'Cleveland Select'
|Description||A distinctive columnar form makes this a great choice for street or yard planting. Showy clusters of gleaming white blooms in early spring. Dark green summer foliage turns a brilliant purplish red-orange in fall. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 40 ft. tall, 15 to 20 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Because this Flowering Pear grows up more than it grows out, it works well in narrow spots or as a street tree. Its white spring flowers and warm fall hues make it a fine specimen. Also beautiful planted in a row.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Companion Plants||Shrub Rose (Rosa); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Bee Balm (Monarda); Lavender (Lavandula)|
|Care||Highly adaptable but best in enriched, well-drained loamy soil with consistent moisture. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
