Kigelia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae. The genus comprises only one species, Kigelia africana, which occurs throughout tropical Africa from Eritrea and Chad south to northern South Africa, and west to Senegal and Namibia.

Common name: Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer
Color: White
Bloom time: April
Height: 25.00 to 35.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
For dependable blooms, plants need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If it’s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over. Most of the popular varieties prefer acidic to neutral soil, but some are lime-tolerant or prefer alkaline soils (e.g., Madonna plants).

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Dry to medium

Temprature: 70 - 73 F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall.
  • All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil.
  • Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot.
  • Most plants are grafted onto the common rootstock because of its superior hardiness.


Care:
  • Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.
  • Late in the season, stop deadheading rugosas so that hips will form on the plants; these can be harvested and dried on screens, away from sunlight, then stored in an airtight container.

Symmetrically attractive narrow pyramidal shape makes this cultivar a good selection for smaller sites. Group or specimen. Small shade tree. May be used as a street tree.
