Ornamental Pear Pyrus calleryana ‘Capital’




A narrow, fastigiate form and possibly the narrowest growing Pyrus cultivar in Australia. An excellent choice for narrow, restricted areas, around carparks, along narrow medians in both the public and private domain.

Narrowly columnar and compact habitat.

Lustrous, dark green leaves changing to reddish-purple late in the season.

Abundant white flowers produced in large corymbs during spring. Small, russet coloured fruit. Inedible. 

Greyish-brown and lightly furrowed bark.

Tolerates a wide range of site conditions including quite dry conditions, slightly alkaline soils and air pollution. Able to handle intermittently wet, heavy soils. 

Best grown in full sun. Good disease resistance.

Can grow up to 11m H x 3m W
