Pyrus Plants

5 plants found in genus "Pyrus"

The Pyrus genus is perhaps better know as the pear family. However there is no need to think of this as a genus of fruiting trees, as there are several very attractive ornamental Pyrus that grow into attractive small to medium sized trees. The ornamental pears are very hardy and are grown for their attractive form, spring blossom and great autumn leaf colour. Many of the edible pears can also be very ornamental - especially if trained against a sunny wall. Pears will be happy in any fertile soils whether dry or wet, and can cope with an exposed planting location, but they do not tolerate shade.
