Arbutus unedo (Strawberry tree) 3L
Evergreen trees that suit the British climate are few and far between and this is a perfect example of one that will give all round interest. With shiny deep green leathery leaves, pretty cream autumn flowers and colourful edible fruit the Strawberry tree deserves to be far more widely grown.
This is an easy tree to grow anywhere and suits coastal regions too. It grows steadily forming a nicely proportioned medium sized bush which is covered with lustrous foliage throughout the year.
In autumn you'll enjoy panicles of creamy bell-shaped blooms which are not unlike lily of the valley in appearance and are particularly welcome as winter approaches. Orange red globe shaped fruits ripen in autumn from the previous years flowers giving the whole tree a very decorative look at this time of year. Fruits are edible but sharp tasting when raw but can be used in preserves.
