Pyrus calleryana 'Capital'
This variant has a narrow and columnar growth habit with dark green leaves that turn a reddish-purple in autumn. Masses of small white flowers bloom during Spring.
This hardy, relatively fast growing tree thrives in well drained soils in a sunny position, however, it is capable of tolerating intermittent waterlogging. Drought, pest and disease resistant.
This Pyrus variant is fastigiate (branches are parallel to the main stem), which makes it very suitable for street planting, screening or in areas where there is limited space. Care should be taken to minimise exposure to strong winds.
Height to 7m; width to 3m
