How to choose Flowering pear trees

Flowering pear trees are a good choice if you are looking for something a bit different. They usually flower quite early in the spring when not much else is around, whilst in autumn they have ornamental fruits (often liked by birds) and interesting foliage colours.

Flowering pear trees are also usually easy to grow, disease-resistant, and tolerant of almost any soil conditions.
