Arbutus unedo 'Compacta'

compact strawberry tree

Handsome evergreen shrub or tree with year-round interest. Shiny green foliage with red stems and cinnamon colored bark, grows in a dense rounded form. Abundant flowers and fruits are often present at the same time. Clusters of urn-shaped white flowers bloom in the autumn and are adored by hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. Showy and prolific, knobby, one inch fruits, change from orange to red as they ripen. The edible fruits resemble strawberries in their color and size, but their flavor and texture appeal to birds more than humans. Grows 6 – 10 foot tall and wide, in full sun to light shade and is drought tolerant once established. Responds to pruning to accentuate its’ sculptural qualities or to train into a tree form.
