Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer'
6ft Ornamental Pear Tree | 13L Pot | Pyrus Chanticleer
This narrowly conical ornamental pear is smothered in sprays of pure white flowers popular with bees in April and May. Later in the year, small ornamental pears develop to add to the year long interest. The glossy, dark green foliage turn marvellous shades of purple and crimson in autumn and are retained right up to the edge of winter. An excellent specimen tree for small urban gardens, it tolerates pollution and alkaline soils.
The pear takes its name from French/ Italian missionary Joseph Callery who, in the 1830s, made his way to China where he developed his interest in botanical collection discovering many species.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
