This was the first named cultivar of Callery pear. A commonly planted ornamental pear, featuring glossy, rounded leaves, a prolific floral display and good autumn foliage colour. Good for urban areas where conditions are poor and roots have restricted growing space. Largely superseded by newer, superior Pyrus cultivars.
