The most successful cultivar of Pyrus calleryana. Medium-high with a narrow, conical to ovoid crown. Remains significantly narrower than 'Bradford', but broader than 'Capital'. Approx. height 12 m. Old bark is rough, greyish brown, and flaking off in small plates. The healthy, glossy green leaves remain on the tree until late in the autumn and then turn lovely yellow and red tints. It blooms profusely, with white flowers in umbels of 6 to 12 together. The diameter of the flower is approx. 2 cm. Fruit rarely appears after flowering. 'Chanticleer' has a deep root system and anchors itself firmly in the ground. Suitable as a solitary tree and along narrow avenues and streets. Prefers neutral to slightly calcareous soil. Also grows in poor soil. Well resistant to air pollution.
