Q.My New Aristocrat Flowering Pear Tree Hasn’t Bloomed

Zone 91423, zone 10 | Anonymous added on March 25, 2022 | Answered

We live in Los Angeles and re-landscaped in October. We added 3 Aristocrat flowering pear trees to the one already in the easement. It’s almost April and the existing tree is beginning to bloom but the 3 new ones have green leaves (with a couple of red ones) with no sign of buds. The new trees are 9’tall. Would transplanting them from the nursery into our yard delay buds for a year? The leaves on the new trees match those on the existing tree. Please Advise. I sent 3 photos but unsure if they uploaded. Let me know and I can send them again.

It could be that it wasn't established yet since it only was planted in October. Did it get water over the winter? The flowers come first so you definitely missed those if the trees are leafing out. Make sure it gets proper water and care this summer and it should bloom next spring. If you think something looks amiss on the tree, however, you should contact the nursery who sold and planted them.
