Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).

How to grow

As you might expect given its origins, Pyrus pashia is a very hardy and resilient tree, suitable for most situations. The best autumn leaf colours are obtained in areas with sunny but cold late autumn days.
