Plant Family Guides: Pyrus - Pears Plant-Family Guides
Beautiful in bloom, handsome in full leaf, heavy with luscious pears, attractive in fall, picturesque in winter, pear trees are very beautiful additions to the landscape across the seasons. Easy to grow and productive, pear trees can be very rewarding, no matter how large or small your garden is. There are thousands of varieties of pear of varying sizes, appearances, and flavors. Pear cultivars can be dessert (eating fresh), culinary (cooking) or dual-purpose. There is surely one for you!
Pyrus calleryana (Callery Pear) is listed in the Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States. The federal government has estimated that nearly 25 percent of the 20,000 plant species native to North America are at risk of extinction, many of these through habitat loss. You can help reverse this trend by planting great native plants in your garden.
