Wildpear Gallery

Post  Karl Thier on Wed Jul 27, 2011 8:02 pm

Hello people, today I want to show you some of my wildpear Pyrus communis. I have been about 10 years in cultivation. All three specimens I collected in Hungary. The third wildpear gets a new pot.

Wow really great trees, every time you post something I have to remind myself jealousy is a vice. One thing caught my eye I wanted to ask about, what is the thing circled in the image below? It looks like an interesting accent in a rock pot. Just caught my eye. Thanks for sharing them.

Yes Jim these are very small Sempervivum planted in stone, fits well with pines. Thank you for your interest in my work.

Very interesting trees! Can you give any advice as to leaf reduction techniques?

Cheers

Really nice trees. What are the approximate dimensions of the first tree? I'm wondering if you have any winter photos without leaves, so the larger branching structure can be seen? I recently was given a pear with a decent trunk base but I don't think much branch work has ever been done...trying to figure that out.

Hi Karl

The third wildpear gets a new pot

Really nice trees, I actually like the look of that 3rd pot, that colour/texture just shallower would be great!
