Arbutus unedo 'Compacta' (Strawberry Tree)

Arbutus unedo 'Compacta' (Strawberry Tree)


If you do not have room for the fabulous tree form of Strawberry Tree, or are looking for an always attractive shrub for hedges, or screens, this is a great choice. Beautiful dark green glossy leafs with red veins, and stems grace this plant year long. Bark is red brown and very attractive, as shrub grow branches and trunks have a tendency to grow twisted and gnarly. In the fall Arbutus unedo 'Compacta' will treat you to a showing of white blossoms and clusters of 1¾ inch round red berries. Arbutus is not picky about soil and will grow in sun to part shade. Slow to moderate growth seldom exceeding 10 ft. with equal spread. This is one outstanding shrub which thrives in our Mediterranean climate.
