Early Spring Blooming Tree With Beautiful White Flowers

The Cleveland Pear Tree has many benefits. When it comes to planting this flawless flowering tree you’ll have an easy decision to make! It has a classic upright oval shape and glossy green foliage.

The Cleveland Select Flowering Pear tree is an excellent curbside accent tree because of its dense white double flowering blossoms. If you are wondering when do Cleveland pears bloom… it is in early spring. It is the same double blooms as cherry trees and also similar to the white flowering dogwood.

The medium sized white blossoms fall in early summer due to heat only to be rejuvenated by dark green foliage. Its green leaves turn to magnificent shades of purple, red, or orange colors for gorgeous fall colors. The Pyrus calleryana genus of pears includes Callery pears, Bradford pears, and the Cleveland select pear.

This pear tree has a superior branch structure that will withstand a multitude of elements including ice and wind damage. The Cleveland Select pear tree is a versatile addition to almost any landscape. Its low maintenance, hardy nature, and beautiful year-round appeal make it an excellent choice as an ornamental tree.


Grow this Cleveland flowering pear tree across the United States in USDA zones 5-9. It is slightly cold hardy.

A slow release fertilizer at the top of the root ball will encourage flower production in the early spring growing season. A thorough watering schedule will help establish a big root system and a strong tree for years to come. The Cleveland Select Pear root system can spread double the size of the tree underground. The planting site should be chosen with this in mind.

The Cleveland Pear Tree growth rate can reach a height of 30 feet to 40 feet tall and a width of up to 15 feet wide. This tree grows fast and can reach up to 2-3 feet per year. Plant at ground level for the health and safety of the tree.

The Cleveland Select pear tree grows well in urban conditions and tolerates heavy clay soils and prefers full sun to partial sunlight. It is resistant to fire blight, disease resistant, and drought tolerant once established. Additionally, it is not picky on soil types once established and can thrive in a variety of planting sites.

Don’t be fooled, this ornamental pear tree does not produce fruit.. only beautiful white blooms that will accentuate any front yard. Check out other flowering trees. The Cleveland pear tree in fall is equally as beautiful.

Shipping information

Once your Cleveland Select Pear Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!



The low-maintenance Cleveland Pear can be planted in partial shade but prefers full sun ideally. It adapts well to different soil types as long as the soil is well-drained. It is drought tolerant but should be watered regularly until established after it’s first year. These fast growing trees maintain their oval shape well naturally. Pruning is only necessary in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches.

Multiple Cleveland Pears should be spaced 15 or more feet apart.


Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Cleveland Pear, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
