Introduced in the early 70's, 'Trinity' is one of several varieties that are improvements on the Bradford Pear. This hardy tree matures to form a dense, well-rounded head with negligible fruit. Glossy green leaves turn orange-red in autumn. A good yard or street tree, well suited to an urban setting.
The tight, dome shaped habit of this pear allows it to fit neatly into a yard juxtaposed to a dwelling, or planted along a roadway. Wide, simple white, delicate looking flowers and leathery green foliage which turns shades of purple and red in fall enhance this good urban choice. Very adaptable to many soil types. Prune in winter or early spring.
