Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer' is the perfect tree to wow your guests in autumn with its vibrant colours. During the summer, the leaves are a glossy dark green and as autumn approaches they turn to fiery red, purple and scarlet, putting on a spectacular show.
In spring, your Ornamental Pear tree also delights the eye with a mass of single white flowers that last through April and May. Set against the luscious green foliage, they look quite stunning. The flowers are popular with wildlife such as birds and bees, bringing sound and movement into your garden.
Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer' has a conical, flame shaped habit and grows to a small ornamental tree with a height of around 5m and a spread of 3m in a 20 year period. Its slender tall shape makes it ideal for smaller gardens or restricted spaces. It is also perfect for avenue planting and is a fabulous feature tree.
Plant your Ornamental Pear in fertile, moist, well drained soil. It is fully hardy and can tolerate full sun or partial shade. This tree is also very resistant to pollution, making it ideal for city gardens.
This name was given to the tree by the Scanlon Nursery after it was discovered in the state of Ohio, USA. The name stems from the Latin word Pyrus which means ‘pear’. Calleryana is added in honour of a 19th century French missionary, Joseph Callery. 'Chanticleer' comes from the French and means 'to sing clearly'.
