Flowering Pear trees are blooming right now. Pyrus calleryana ‘Bradford’ or Bradford Pear. The Aristocrat  pear is very similar. Both have gorgeous white blooms that lasts about 2-4 weeks.  The Tree will grow to about 40-50 ft. tall and wide.  Nice thick dark green foliage spring through summer seasons. The foliage will also turn a nice red/purple color in late fall.  It is a deciduous tree which means it will lose it’s leaves during the cold winter months.
