Top 10 Trees – Ornamental Pear ‘Capital’ (Pyrus Calleryana)

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. Lustrous, dark green leaves changing to reddish-purple late in the season and abundant white flowers produced in large corymbs during spring. It is adaptable to a wide range of site conditions including quite dry conditions, slightly alkaline soils and air pollution. Able to handle intermittently wet, heavy soils.
