Arbutus unedo

Strawberry Tree

Arbutus unedo is a four-season evergreen shrub with outstanding flowers, fruit, leaves, and bark on an easy-to-grow plant. Pretty white, bell-shaped flowers bloom for a long period and appear at the same time as the fruit at various stages of ripeness. Some of the fruit is golden and some are red, and the combination of fruit and flowers is very attractive and unique. Your feathered neighbors will love them too. A very tough evergreen shrub / tree that can tolerate a range of difficult soils and locations. The glossy leaves are serrated and the trunk & stems are red like the Pacific Madrone to which it is related. A native of Ireland and thought to be a relic from before the last ice age. Ten-year height is about 8' high by 6 to 7' wide if left unpruned. Eventually it can reach 15 to 20' high and nearly as wide.

Arbutus x 'Marina'

Strawberry Tree

A pleasant, evergreen, shrubby tree on which both red and yellow edible 'strawberry-like' fruit hang at the same time in fall. 'Marina' has large leaves, rosy pink flowers and peeling bark revealing smooth, reddish new bark. Beloved by birds. These plants have been cut to promote more branching so the mature plants will be half the height of the typical 'tree' form. Drought resistant and practically disease resistant, the strawberry tree is easy to care for. An excellent, tough evergreen shrub / tree that can tolerate a range of difficult locations and is also a good firescaping plant.
