Cleveland Flowering Pear Tree
I am interested in purchasing a "Cleveland Flowering Pear Tree" whereby all the places on the web that take orders for this tree ships them in bare root form. My question is this: is this a good time to plant this type (bare root) of tree now in June, 2006 for the Illinois area? Will it survive the winter? Is this type of tree to plant in bare root form and good type to plant or should I wait to see if I could buy one that is more developed from a nursery next spring?
Do you know fast this tree will grow? If I plant it from bare root, approximately how long will I need to wait before I see it develope and get the blooms?
Thank you so much,
