Sizing guide
Pyrus calleryana 'Javelin', commonly known as Javelin Pear, is a striking deciduous tree characterized by its narrow, columnar form, making it ideal for tight spaces and urban gardens. This ornamental pear tree grows up to 6-8 meters in height and 1-2meters in width, providing a sleek, vertical accent in landscapes. In spring, it produces an abundance of white blossoms, followed by glossy green leaves that turn brilliant shades of red, orange, and purple in autumn.
To grow Pyrus calleryana 'Javelin' in Melbourne, plant it in a sunny location with well-draining soil. This tree is highly adaptable and can thrive in various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It is also tolerant of urban pollution, making it suitable for city environments. Water regularly during the establishment phase, typically the first couple of years, to promote deep root development. Once established, 'Javelin' is relatively drought-tolerant, requiring only occasional deep watering during prolonged dry periods.
Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Prune in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches and to maintain its narrow form. 'Javelin' is generally pest and disease-resistant, requiring minimal maintenance. With its elegant shape and seasonal interest, Pyrus calleryana 'Javelin' is an excellent choice for adding vertical structure and visual appeal to Melbourne gardens.
