Along with the flowering tree we planted out front last spring, we also bought a few different fruit trees - they were cheap, too, at $5.00 a tree. I didn't have much hope that they'd last the winter, but surprisingly enough...they've come back strong!
Here's (what I'm pretty sure is) our Pear Tree. We planted it on the south side of our lot and it took in plenty of sun last summer. It shot up and is now thriving.
creeping" this summer!
(Note: due to the bark on the tree - and it's simliarlity to the "Cleveland Pear Flowering Tree" in the front yard, I'm pretty sure this is a Pear Tree. If you are a arborist reading this, don't blast me in the comments with talk about genus/species of this particular tree!)
