Redspire Flowering Pear Tree (Bare Root, 3 t. to 4 ft. Tall)
Redspire has a tight, upright growth habit that makes it easy to add fast, colorful life to your landscape. The snowy white flowers blanket this tree in mid-spring, creating a dramatic effect against shiny, green-maroon leaves. These narrow leaves are at their full peak of color in autumn however when they go through a veritable light show of gold, purple and crimson. This Flowering Pear cultivar is typically planted for its flowers, but becomes beloved for its vivid shades of autumn color. Another attractive feature of Redspire is the deep-reaching root structure leaves it especially well-suited for planting near sidewalks, roads and other paved areas since the taproots tend to grow straight down, leaving surfaces undisturbed over time. This structure also allows Redspire to require notably less watering as the roots pull moisture from deeper in the ground than other trees. Redspire Flowering Pear, botanical name Pyrus calleryana Redspire, is suited to USDA zones 5-9, with full sun to part shade. It is quite tall and narrow at maturity, reaching 35 ft. to 45 ft. tall and 15 ft. to 20 ft. W. The Redspire Flowering Pear is a fast-growing, drought-tolerant ornamental tree that provides multi-seasonal interest beginning with large snow-white blossoms in spring and ending with a dynamic and colorful autumn display.
