A beautiful ornamental tree with high seasonal color, the Flower Pear Tree, botanical name Pyrus calleryana, is a colorful and wonderful addition to just about any Houston landscape. When its large, showy white flowers appear, it is so dense that the entire tree appears white! As attractive as this tree is in bloom, its deep green foliage is just as beautiful and provides a generous amount of shade, too.
