Pyrus elaeagnifolia 'Silver Sails'


This excellent silver foliage tree is a good alternative to Prunus salicifolia ‘Pendula’ being a better flowering form and producing small ornamental fruit in the autumn.

The greensilver leaves are shaped like boat sails. The flowers are large, pure white with red anthers in March.
