Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer, or Chanticleer Pear, is an extremely versatile and attractive landscaping tree. Adaptable to a variety of locations, with long-lasting foliage and beautiful spring blossoms, this deciduous tree is a great choice for UK gardens! These particular specimens have been shaped over time as full standard trees on a clear stem. We recommend using them for above fence or hedge screening or in smaller gardens as an ornamental tree or trees. You may also be interested in our Pleached Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer.
Bred by Edward Scanlon from parent plants found in China in 1917, Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer has been a favourite of landscape planners since the 1950’s. Its green, glossy leaves are one of the first to emerge in the spring, and in April and May the trees are covered with fragrant, pure white flowers. The small brown fruits which follow are not edible, but are attractive to wildlife. In autumn the leaves turn orange, red and purple, and may remain on the tree into early winter. The long-lasting deciduous foliage makes it an excellent tree for screening for much of the year. Hardy in most parts of the UK, in 20 years the Chanticleer Pear will grow to 5 metres tall and 3 metres wide, with a mature height of more than 12 metres and spread of 4-8 metres in 20 to 50 years. These Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer Full Standard trees just need pruning once per year.
The Chanticleer Pear will grow happily in any well-drained soil, in a sheltered or exposed position in full sun. Tolerant of pollution, it is an excellent tree for city gardens or avenues. It can be planted in coastal regions as well, although it needs some protection from direct exposure to salt. Once established, it is drought-resistant. Tall, slim and elegant, Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer Full Standard trees make an excellent tree for small city gardens, as its narrow, upright shape will keep it within bounds even in a restricted space.
