  • Uses

    Ornamental pear trees are beautiful options for a larger flowering tree. The ‘Autumn Blaze’ pear is a wider spreading variety compared to ‘Chanticleer ‘ or ‘Cleveland Select’. The wider spread and lower branching of this tree would make it a great candidate for planting on the front corner of your lawn. The white flowers that cover the tree would look great against a background of evergreens in a back lot. These trees also look great in row plantings along property edges.
