I was visiting a friend of mine today. She showed me her Seckle (Seckel) on calleryana rootstock. The tree was going up like a pine, and had lots of small flowers clustered very tightly. It looked in fact exactly like the flowering pear across the street (where all you can see this time of year is white...) I am wondering if somehow the roostock sprouted up and now the tree is the rootsock. I have a bunch of pear trees, and though there is a lot of variation in flower density, I don't have any that have anywhere near the density of small flowers that the flowering pears have. (I used to think I had a seckle, then I realized it was mis-labeled, though it makes fine fruit....)

So, if this tree she has is really callery, I can wack it off and graft it into something edible. But can anybody tell me, given the limited information presented here, does a real seckle have a bloom density anywhere near a flowering pear?
