Strawberry Tree - 1 plant in 9cm pot

Strawberry Tree – 1 plant in 9cm pot £9.99
 Customer Review RatingNew in 2012Evergreen shrubYear-round interestFor year round interest, this superb Strawberry Tree is hard to beat. Arbutus unedo ‘Compacta’ forms a neat evergreen shrub or small tree that can be easily grown in a sheltered border or container. The small, lantern-shaped autumn flowers are followed by rounded scarlet red fruits that take a full year to ripen - so fruits and flowers can often be seen on the plant at the same time! Although edible, the fruits of the Strawberry Tree have a sharp aftertaste, so they best made into jams and preserves for a sweeter Guava-like flavour. Height and spread: 150cm (59"). Supplied in 9cm pot.Useful links:How to plant trees and shrubs
