Strawberry Tree

Strawberry TreeThe Strawberry Tree (Arbutus Unedo, Linn.), related to our Madronas, is cultivated in Southern gardens. This brilliant little European tree bears in the fall its rosy flowers in nodding clusters along with its large scarlet fruits. It is hardy in warmtemperate regions, but requires shelter from the wind. It is also offered by dealers in red-flowered varieties.
