    Description:

    This ornamental pear colors up a couple of weeks earlier in the fall to a lovely red-purple; flowers are white and come out after the leaves; hardier than other pears as well as smaller with better branch angles, little pruning is generally needed

    Ornamental Features

    Korean Sun Pear has green foliage throughout the season. The glossy oval leaves turn an outstanding red in the fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Korean Sun Pear is a dense deciduous tree with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

    This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Korean Sun Pear is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Shade

    Planting & Growing

    Korean Sun Pear will grow to be about 15 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

    This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
