Product Details

The Cleveland Flowering Pear Tree is a miracle from nature.  This tree with remain flawless year after year with absolutely no maintenance.  Loaded with white blossoms every spring, it will be sure to turn heads.  This beauty does not stop there!  The summer brings a tree covered in shiny green leaves that turn a beautiful mahogany red in the fall.  These fall leaves boast beautiful shades of red, purple and orange.

Naturally growing in a tight symmetrical shape, the Cleveland Pear is the perfect, EASY tree to plant. This low maintenance, fast growing tree has all the beauty of the Bradford Pear without all the headaches.

For best results plant this tree in well-drained soil with direct sunlight. The Cleveland Pear tree grows at an astounding rate.  The mature height is 30-40 feet with a 15-20 feet spread.  Not only is this tree fast and easy to grow, it is also adaptable to many soil types, drought tolerant and pest resistant.  It tolerates sun to partial shade, but does require several hours of sunlight per day. The Cleveland Pear grows naturally tight and is symmetrical in shape. This keeps branches together which prevents that splitting damage that is so common in the Bradford Pear.

For a tree that requires zero maintenance and looks great all year round, the Cleveland Pear is at the top of the list.  This classic, front yard tree bursts into snow white blossoms every spring and will make your yard the envy of the neighborhood.

This Flowering Pear is great for yards, lining a driveway, walkways or along the side of the house.  Cleveland Pears are often seen in urban areas due to their ability to withstand pollution. Much stronger than the Bradford, they are able to resist damage from extreme snow, ice and wind.  The attractive Cleveland Pear is perfect for landscapes without a lot of room. It’s narrow, pyramid shape makes it easy to fit smaller spaces. 

If you’re looking for a tree that adds beauty to your yard without constant attention the Cleveland Pear is a perfect choice.

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  


Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

cleveland pear tree
I ordered two trees and they arrived in Idaho in four days. The trees arrived in perfect condition do to the way they were packed. The trees have been in the ground now for eight days and are doing quite well. It's a rare site to see trees with blooms and flowers on them this time of year. I am very pleased and I think these tress will become well adapted.
