Silver Sail is a small ornamental pear tree. The main attraction is the silvery-green foliage, which emerges in early spring and continues until late autumn. The individual leaves have some resemblance to yacht sails.
Silver Sail features large single white flowers in spring, with crimson centres.
Small (approx. 2cm) ornamental fruitlets appear in the autumn. These can be cooked.
The tree grows with a compact upright habit.
