Pyrus pyrifolia - color

Post  JimLewis on Mon Nov 07, 2011 5:57 pm

Height 10 inches. In training since 1995. From a seedling dug in my yard in Tallahassee, FL in 1990 (remnants of the waste from a batch of pear relish Jackie made in 1989).

Thanks, Pavel. I've had a lot of fun with this tree over the years.

Wish I could get it to bloom!

I don't know, John. Some years, I've done little to it and let it go. Still no blooms. We planted 4-5 other seedlings along our drive. When last seen they were 30 + feet tall. Bloomed profusely every spring and were gorgeous in the fall. The guy who bought our farm cut them all down!

Nice tree Jim ThumbsUp Have you given any thought about a different pot for it? Maybe a wider, shallower glazed pot...green or blue or cream?

Thanks all. Guess I'll have to live with the "bloomlessness."

It has lived in other pots, but seems happiest in this one. Maybe I'll find a better one some day.

Jim,
Here's a pic of my wild Pyrus on a rock. I will do a new post after the leaves fall to show structure.
