Plants for Spring Interest – Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer

Pyrus chanticleer

Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer is certainly an interesting specimen. Not only does it feature exceptional spring interest, but the tree remains both functional and noteworthy throughout the year. It’s certainly worth your attention, so do take a look through our collection of common trees and see if this species is for you.

Pyrus Chanticleer is narrow to start with, broadening out to a conical shape. It possesses an ultimate height of 8-12m, but is prunable. During April it is covered in small, creamy-white flowers arriving before the leaves come out, making a stunning sight.

The tree is deciduous, but remains useful well into the autumn months. The glossy green foliage will often last as long as late November, making it an excellent choice for garden screening compared to other deciduous species. You’ll even enjoy the autumn colour, ranging from deep yellows and orange to a startling scarlet in full sun.

Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer is extremely hardy. It prefers moist, neutral to alkaline soils, and will even tolerate poor, dry soils. If you’re seeking a street tree it’s worth considering, being tolerant of atmospheric pollution and heavy winds. The latter even makes it appropriate for coastal planting!

We’re highly recommending the plant, and hope you’re interested enough to take a look. It’s priced between £38.40 and £252.00 including VAT with sizes ranging from 175cm to 450cm, and we’re certain you won’t be disappointed with its appearance and functionality. If you have any questions and queries however, never hesitate to contact us and we’ll see how we can help.
