Callery Pear is an upright-branched ornamental tree, that grows from columnar to pyramidal in its youth, and usually becomes more oval or spreading with maturity. They are recognized for their early and abundant spring blooms, glossy green foliage and often beautiful fall color. Flowers are five-petaled and creamy white (each to 3/4” wide) that bud on dense corymbs early to mid-spring; the flowers are followed by clusters of inedible, greenish-yellow fruits (1/2” diameter) which have no ornamental significance. Glossy dark green leaves (3” long) are narrow and oval with distinctive wavy margins. Foliage turns an attractive reddish-purple to bronzy red in fall.
