Устойчивость к ветру:
Native to China and rarely cultivated here. This is an ornamental pear with a vertical manner of growth and a round to broad oval crown. The trunk is dark greyish brown and young twigs have woolly hair. The broad elliptical to elongated oval leaves taper to a point, are approx. 5 - 10 cm big and have a finely serrated edge. Young leaves have velvety grey hair but later become bare and turn dark green. Flowers grow in umbels and appear in April/May. They are white and have a diameter of approx. 2.5 cm. Large, brown fruit shaped like apples follow after flowering. These have lighter lenticels and remain on the tree until January. Suitable for parks and gardens. Tolerates paving.
Because of its small volume Pyrus serrulata can be easily planted in small gardens.
The fruit often remain on the tree until deep into the winter.
