Pyrus elaeagrifolia ‘Silver Sails’

A particularly silvery leaved form of this tough small tree from SE Europe and Turkey with lance shaped leaves folding in at the margins. One of the finest species for silver foliage effect, but rarely planted. White flowers in spring, followed by small round fruit, maturing brownish-yellow. A whole lot nicer than the dumpy P. salicifolia 'Pendula' and suited to a wide range of soils in sun where you'll find it drought tolerant, as well as happy in a a warming climate.
