Last year when this I saw this photo in Traditional Home, I became obsessed. I had to have a pear tree like this one. So, imagine how ecstatic I was to find a bare root dwarf pear for less than $3 on clearance at Lowe's. It was the tiniest thing and I wasn't sure it would survive but it was worth it to try. There are four types of pear grafted onto one trunk; Anjou, Red Bartlett, Bartlett and Flemish Beauty. It has been in the ground for a year now and we are excited to see it beginning to bloom. In the course of a year it has grown 3 feet so I know that it will look like it's inspiration in no time at all (what's a few years in the life of a garden?).
