Growing in popularity is the Bradford Pear. This is a flowering non-fruiting grafted hybrid that makes a very nice tree to plant along the driveway or street where space is limited and where it can be seen!
The Bradford Flowering Pear gets covered in white flowers in the early spring. These trees can grow up to 40 feet tall, and can be planted from Zones 6 to 9. This means they can be enjoyed over much of the country! They hold a narrow shape, so depending on the need and desired look, they can be planted as close as six feet apart, but eight to twelve feet apart is more commonly done.
Besides the masses of flowers and narrow shape, Bradford Pears are hardy and disease resistant. Many municipalities plant them along streets because the roots are not invasive like some trees, and the mature height won't interfere with overhead power lines. The fall color is yellow, and also a nice added feature of this tree.
The Bradford Flowering Pear is a decorative small to mid-sized tree that adds some very nice spring flowers and attractive color. These are becoming very popular, and you can understand why!
How to grow these. Simply stated, these grow best in moist well-drained fertile soils with full sun. Most soils can be alright, but plenty of water and some added fertilizer will improve their growth and survival. If your soils are rocky, heavy clay, or very sandy, then add compost or other materials mixed into the planting spot. Planting instructions are included with each order, or can be read on the Nursery webpage.
