Arbutus canariensis - Wholesale

Arbutus canariensis is a relatively small growing evergreen ornamental tree sometimes referred to as the 'Strawberry tree' for its small red fruit.

Growing conditions and Landscaping uses

Prefering a humus rich but well drained soil it is grown for its glossy green foliage and extremly attractive 'mahogany' bark. Exellent specimens in gardens throughtout the Dandenong ranges, Pirianda Gardens, Tindale Gardens as well the Botanic Gardens in Melbourne and Ballarat. Fairly slow growing but a very attractive and durable tree once established. In rural areas use the sterile A. andrachnoides instead.
