Pyrus calleryana 'Capital'

Foliage Deciduous
Form Fastigiate
Mature Size 11-12 x 1-3m
Family Rosaceae
Capital Ornamental Pear

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.

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.

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.
