Common Pear Flowering Bonsai Material

As rare as hens teeth. Experts disagree wether this tree is a UK native however it has certainly been here for thousands of years but has now almost disappeard from the wild in a great deal of the country. Pyrus communis is a wild form of the cultivated pear trees common in gardens and nurseries everywhere. This type of pear has very small glossy leaves and white flowers appear on previous years wood. Wild pear is exceptionally frost hardy and can stand temperatures down to below 20 Celsius. A very simple tree to cultivate as bonsai, pear appreciates full sun and plenty of water in summer. Do not re-pot too often if you hope to see flowers. Most years the tree will give you a spectacular display of colour before dropping it's leaves showing green, red, yellow and brown all at once it looks simply stunning.
