Do ornamental pears selfseed?
I have been seeing a lot of small young trees blooming white that look a lot like ornamental pears, but they are scattered in fencerows and other wild places, not planted in a lawn. I know they aren't wild plums as they are too columnar and the blooms very o-pear-like. And almost always when I see one or two or more in an area, I will see an ornamental pear within a quarter mile or so. There is a nursery on 412 east of Tulsa with dozens of large ornamental pears blooming and scattered along the freeway for a quarter mile in either direction are these young trees. Anybody know for sure if they are seedling pears? Makes me wonder if we have another privet situation developing.
