Freedom Flowering Pear
Item #: Freedom Flowering Pear
Availability: Pick-up Only
We selected Freedom Flowering Pear from a block of pears we had grafted from budwood taken from Bradford Pears on Main Street in our nearby town of Alachua. It is far superior to Bradford and other varieties of Callery Pears because it is not subject to defoliation in the long hot summers of the south due to leaf spot. It has highly disease resistant, rich green foliage, beautiful white spring flowers and brilliant orange-red fall color.
Tree Form: Vase
Bloom: Large white blossoms in March
Foliage: Highly disease resistant dark green leaves, red-orange in fall, deciduous (seasonally loses leaves)

Pruning: Pruning consists of the removal of dead, diseased, or damaged branches maintaining size (width) within your landscape. Early pruning in the trees life and keeping up with it yearly promotes strong healthy tree.
