Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
It's easy to see why Arbutus unedo f. rubra holds an RHS AGM. This majestic evergreen forms a bushy tree or large shrub with plenty of year round interest. Beneath the evergreen foliage, the branches are enveloped in beautiful red-brown bark which gleams in the sun with a shedding, rough texture at maturity. The pretty urn shaped flowers emerge in autumn against a backdrop of leathery foliage, providing valuable late-season nectar for pollinating insects. The flowers later form rounded strawberry-like fruits which mature in the following year as new flowers develop. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Strawberry trees will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young. Perfect for coastal gardens and sheltered woodland areas. Height and spread up to: 8m (25').

Feed and water Strawberry Trees regularly until fully established. Once established, Arbutus trees require little attention except for the occasional removal of damaged, diseased and misplaced shoots in winter or spring.
Grow Strawberry Trees in any non alkaline, fertile, moist but free draining soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost into the soil prior to planting. Choose a position in full sun with shelter from cold winds. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Arbutus plants will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young.
