The botanical name of Strawberry tree is Arbutus unedo and is a shrub that bears delicate, fragrant flowers and brightly colored fruits that are not strawberries, but bland-tasting, round fruits. The oblong leaves are shiny and dark, two to four inches long. The Strawberry tree actually produces bell-shaped white or pink flowers that grow in clusters and mature along with the fruit in the fall. Tying all of this together is the attractive multicolored bark and twisting branches that make this a lovely ornamental tree and, when left as a shrub, can mature into a lush, dense dome shape. Plant new Strawberry trees in the fall and expect a slow to moderate growth rate for this shrub.
