Quick Overview

Why it rocks:

Aristocrat Pear is an outstanding medium sized ornamental/shade tree for home landscapes. The stunning clusters of white flowers are the first of the season to emerge, and give way to dark green, glossy, heart-shaped leaves which turn to an outstanding deep red in fall. Being one of the last trees to lose its leaves in the fall, Aristocrat Pear is one of the most impressive ornamental trees available. Compared to Cleveland Select Ornamental Pear, the Aristocrat Pear has a much more open rounded form which has a much less formal look. This tree is very similar to, and a better alternative than Bradford Pear. 

Where to put it:

Because of its size and shape, Aristocrat Pear is extremely versatile in the landscape. Aristocrat Pear can be used anywhere from the parkway to the front landscape, and can provide shade as well as accent. This tree should be planted at least 15ft away from buildings. 

What it needs:

Aristocrat Pear is an extremely tolerant tree which can grow in almost any conditions.
