Pink Wild Pear Overview
The Pink wild pear with its handsome, large, velvety leaves and fragrant, pretty white-to-pale-pink, cherry-eyed flowers, is known far and wide for being a very easy and adaptable small tree or shrub which adds a tropical, exotic feel to any lightly shaded garden. The multi-branching tree or shrub is ornamental not only due to its exotic flowers but also that its grapevine-shaped leaves provide foliar, tactile and textural interest. Its small dimensions makes this tree ideal for the town house or small garden, as it seldom exceeds 4m in height and spread. It may even be classed as a large shrub, especially when planted in small groups in larger gardens or estates. The pretty pink flowers persist on the plant when they are finished flowering to provide an attractive display of light russet brown flowers which may also be used in dry flower arrangements. The fruits are small, round, furry capsules. ZA Distribution: KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga.
