Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer is an extremely popular deciduous tree which is often planted for screening purposes.
This pretty tree is the first to come into leaf in the spring, when its leaves emerge in conjunction with a pretty white flower which covers the tree. The foliage further emerges a bright and glossy green and remains on the tree until well into the autumn time, when it turns a bright orangey red before falling. Not only is Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer the first tree into leaf in the spring, it is the last tree to lose its leaves in the autumn time, a useful quality for screening. This callery pear has been known to produce very small fruits on occasion, however this should not cause concern as it is not a regular, or indeed impactful occurrence.
Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer was bred by Edward Scanlon in the United States and it won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002. It has a uniform and columnar pyramidal shape when young, gradually broadening to a more oval shape over time. It is tolerant of pollution, and some salt laden winds, but should not be planted in direct line with salt. It is a tough performer, tolerating harsh urban conditions, as well as thriving in an array of soil types.
This Medium to Large pear tree has an array of uses, from being used in avenues, to parklands, to gardens and for screening. It is a widely planted urban tree that is now finding a use for domestic planting and is certainly a tree not to be missed! It is a Barcham favourite.
If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
