The Flordahome pear (Pyrus communis) tree that we planted last year is thriving! This is exciting, because not all of the trees we've planted have done so well.
Pears have a beautiful white bloom in the early spring. While most of the things I've chosen to plant have been things that have fall color, I couldn't resist this pear.
We had a big pear tree in the back yard of the old Cracker house we rented for many years, and it was beautiful in spring and turned a lovely golden color in the fall. I'm not sure what color this pear tree will turn in autumn, but time will tell.
