Pyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’ – Ornamental / Callery Pear
The ornamental pear is a very narrow, upright and attractive garden tree. They have glossy leaves that have a natural curve and stay late into the autumn. In early spring, they fashion bunches of small, white blossoms but, as they are an ornamental variety, they do not bear any fruits from these. The leaves turn purple-red in autumn before dropping.
These are highly versatile trees in terms of location. They are drought tolerant, suitable for most soils, very hardy and can be trained onto frames/screens. Also, this variety is honey fungus-resistant and can grow to 5 metres tall and 3 metres wide after 10 years.
