Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer' | Ornamental Pear Tree
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.

Pots and Packaging
Larger pots (2L and above) are wrapped in waxed paper and then attached to a cardboard base so they stay stable in the box. The waxed paper prevents the compost from spilling out and gives the base some added protection from damp compost. For large numbers of plants, pallets may be used for shipping.
The nursery will ensure the plant is moist while it's waiting to be picked up. Our quality control team waters the plant before packing them where necessary to make sure that the plant is suitably watered for transport. Plants with long delicate stems are secured with canes to prevent damage.
Plant on Arrival
Typically plants are delivered ready to plant and will take some time to settle, grow and look more like the product image above.
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
