Arbutus unedo (Strawberry Tree) - A very versatile tree--that can grow at the beach or in the desert and in any soil or climate type. Grows to 35 feet high with equal spread. The white flowers and edible red strawberry-like fruits appear in the fall through the winter. Trunk and branches shred their bark exposing the red-colored new bark. Plant in sun or shade. Drought tolerant, but will take regular watering.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited.
