Bradford Pears blooming - view from my deck


I love when the Bradford Pears bloom in the Spring and I can see them from my windows and off my deck. They are so pretty! But they sure are stinky! Whew!

Have a question about this project?

    Blooming Bradford Pears smell like something dead here in NC. I wonder how people can stand to be outdoors or have a window open near them. Is there a variety that doesn't stink so?

    You are not alone (4S), I will not buy or plant any privet of any kind anywhere. The same for Bradford pears, and Barberries (Berberis thunbergii).

    I lost both my Bradford Pears last year to fire blight. I am in central Indiana. Fifteen years and they were beautiful. Still standing but very sparse on leaves. Heartbroken!
