Pyrus f. 'Korean Sun' (Deciduous)
Description: Excellent fall color and compact size are key attributes of this selection. Although definitely a dwarf, this cultivar grows faster with better nursery characteristics than the parent species. Much hardier than Pyrus calleryana, it also has a smaller, more rounded and shrub-like head. This ornamental pear colors up a couple of weeks earlier in the fall to a lovely red-purple.
