Copper pear grows as a shrub with several stems and is 3-4 meters high. The wind and frost-resistant shrub thrives best in the sun or in light shade on any garden soil, hardly needs pruning and is valued for its beautiful foliage colour.

The copper pear likes to be in the sun

Copper pear usually grows as a shrub, but can also be raised to a standard with a targeted pruning. The leaves of the copper pear tree are bronze to copper in spring, later green and turn yellow, orange or deep red in autumn. In April, shortly before the leaves sprout, the copper rock pear is covered with a covering of white flowers, from which small spherical, blue-black fruits develop in autumn. The shrub owes its name "currant tree" to them.

demands on location

  • sunny to semi-shady,
  • normal garden soil, also sandy-loamy or loamy-clayey,
  • before planting, loosen rocky subsoil, improve heavy and wet soils.

tips

Copper pear trees have shallow roots and are therefore also well suited for rock gardens.
