Pyrus betulifolia  'Southworth' Dancer

Pyrus betulifolia  'Southworth' Dancer

Proving to be a tough and durable ornamental pear, smaller and markedly different in form, colour and texture to most Pyrus cultivars currently available in Australia. This attractive flowering ornamental pear selection has fine birch-like leaves that ‘dance’ in the slightest breeze. An excellent choice of small growing foliage tree, perfect for parks, gardens and streetscapes.
