Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

This selection of Strawberry Tree is distinguished by the delicate shell-pink colouring of its pretty, urn-shaped flowers. Arbutus unedo 'Roselily' is a handsome evergreen small tree or large shrub that delivers all year-round interest. It makes an excellent choice for coastal and urban locations, associating perfectly with Mediterranean plantings and providing a banquet of late food for pollinating insects in wildlife-friendly gardens. Beneath a domed crown of evergreen, glossy foliage, strong branches develop cinnamon-brown bark which sheds on maturity. In early autumn, clusters of pretty, bell-shaped, pale pink flowers show up beautifully against the dark backdrop of leathery leaves. The flowers are followed by striking strawberry-like fruits which develop from the previous year’s flowers. Maximum height and spread: 4-8m (13-26ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

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.
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.
