Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
The ‘Killarney strawberry tree’, so called because of its attractive strawberry-like edible fruits, is an asset to any garden, being evergreen and providing year-round interest. Unusually for an ericaceous plant, it is lime-tolerant and can be grown in a variety of soil conditions. The off-white pitcher-shaped flowers and red fruits may be produced simultaneously, creating a fascinating display in autumn. The gnarled, reddish-brown, shredding bark is set off by the small, leathery, dark-green leaves. Arbutus unedo forms a fascinating small tree that can withstand gales. Height and spread: 8m (25').

Flowering Months
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 Arbutus 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.
