The Plants

Pyrus callyeryana 'Chanticleer'

Photo of Pyrus callyeryana 'Chanticleer'


A lovely tree with glossy, dark-green foliage that creates a wonderful foil for the mass of white flowers in April-May. The flowers are popular with wildlife such as bees. 'Chanticleer' is one of the best ornamental pears for autumn colour, with the foliage turning vivid red before falling. A narrowly conical medium-sized deciduous tree with glossy dark green ovate leaves, usually colouring well in autumn. Abundant clusters of white flowers followed by small brown fruits
