Pyrus calleryana  Chanticleer®

Currently one of the most widely planted ornamental pears in Australia. A superb, upright ornamental pear with a dense habit, masses of spring flowers and attractive foliage throughout summer & autumn. Excellent for sites where lateral space is restricted. Its tough disposition and aesthetic attributes combine to make a wonderfully versatile tree for home gardens or streets and public areas.
