Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer is an ornamental Pear, meaning that it does not fruit and was created to furnish streets.
It is a very 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 well into the autumn time, when it turns a bright orangey red before falling.
This fantastic tree is not just the first to come into leaf, but it is the last to lose its leaves.
