Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer', 'Cleveland Select', 'Select' and 'Stone Hill' are all the same tree. So many names for a beautiful tree. The 'Chanticleer' Pear is a upright-pyramidal tree that is much narrower than the ever popular 'Bradford' Pear. The 'Chanticleer' flowers heavily in the spring. Its leaves are a glossy dark green that turn reddish purple in the fall. This tree has wonderful landscape value and is one of the best choices where lateral space to spread is limited. 'Chanticleer' is less susceptible to early freezes than other Pears. It will grow up to 35 feet high and 16 feet wide. The 'Chanticleer' Pear is very adaptable to many different soils and it tolerates dryness and pollution. Plant in full sun. Prune in winter or early spring. It produces less litter than a Bradford Pear. If you water deeply, the roots will grow deep and they shouldn't cause problems on the soil surface or raise sidewalks.
