Pyrus Chanticleer have many informal names including the Flowering Pear, the Callery Pear and the Ornamental Pear. They are conical shaped deciduous trees with dark green oval shaped leaves and scented white flowers in the spring. The leaves colour well in the autumn and are highly attractive with their yellow, crimson and orange autumnal colours. Pyrus Chanticleer are one of the first trees to come out in leaf in the spring and one of the last to lose their leaves in the autumn.
These Pyrus Chanticleer standard trees will grow into handsome specimen trees that fit well in many gardens. It is a very easy to grow tree that is suitable for many situations and will remain as a medium sized tree.
These standard trees are planted in container bags with handles which makes for easier handling whilst planting. These are a more premium plant than buying them as bare rooted specimens as being container grown, these trees will establish quicker in the garden.
As these are substantial sized Pyrus Chanticleer trees, we recommend that they are planted and fixed using a tree stake and tree tie to stabilise them during their first few years after planting. This will help prevent damage occurring in strong winds before their roots have become properly established. We also recommend planting these trees in a mixture of soil and compost to give the roots the best environment to get settled in. If you are in any doubt as to what accessories you may require for planting these trees, please give us a ring and we will happily advise.
