Tree Pyrus calleryana 'Capital' Ornamental Pear

 

 

 

 
Description This tree has a narrow growth habit with luscious shiny green leaves that hang vertically from branches. An attractive curl in the foliage adds further interest and the slender, columnar shape lends itself well to tight spaces. In autumn, leaves turn a purpley-red colour and spring brings a beautiful display of lovely white flowers followed by small, russet coloured fruits.    
Foliage
Deciduous
   
Form
Fastigiate
   
Mature Size 11-12 x 1-3m    
Uses Excellent for street planting. Can also be used as a feature or in parks and gardens. Screening or group planting works well in most gardens and adds great autumn colour.    
Position & Soil Best in humus rich well drained soils in a full sun position. Can tolerate dry conditions but also occasional wet periods. Air pollution should not be a problem for these trees.
