Ornamental Pear (Pyrus cal. Chanticleer) Screening Panel is a hidden gem of the tree world. It is one of the earliest trees to come in to leaf in the spring with the leaves coming out after the creamy white flowers. These leaves develop from a pale fresh green into a good rich glossy green giving great coverage and interest during the summer. They make a great back drop to more ornamental plants. In the Autumn they are one of the last trees to drop their leaves making them a great screening plant and they have the added bonus of changing to a glorious orange red before they drop.
Ornamental Pear (Pyrus cal. Chanticleer) Screening Panel is tolerant of pollution and harsh urban conditions which makes them a tree suitable for nearly everywhere. The Royal Horticultural Society gave this species an Award of Garden Merit in 1984
