Espalier trees. I would love to hide a length of cinder block wall with a "orchard" of espaliered fruit trees.

Bartlett Pear Tree, 15 x 15. #1 pear in the world with juicy white flesh. This delicious large pear has a round bell shape on the bottom and a short neck on the top half. Bartlett is a self-fertile variety however it produces much better when planted with a partner. These famous fruits ripen in August. Amazing spring white bloom. Fruit trees need a minimum of 6-8 hours sunlight daily, and need water. They are not drought tolerant.

Crocus chrysanthus 'Cream Beauty', species crocus bulbs. Rich-cream goblets with brown flushes and deep golden-yellow throats, emerge in February and March amid slender, strap-shaped, mid green leaves. These spring-flowering crocuses are perfect for naturalising in sunny, well-drained areas of the lawn. Relatively vigorous, they soon form large colonies, which can be divided in early autumn for use in other parts of the garden.
