Strawberry Tree Arbutus Unedo
A really delightful small tree with a marvellous spreading habit, the Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo) will grace a garden with it interesting peeling brown bark and shiny vivid green leaves. An exhibition of colour during autumn, when the white flowers often tinged pink, are formed and the fruit from the previous year turn the strawberry red colour and not dissimilar in appearance to Strawberries. The fruits are not edible.
This tree is suitable for a wide range of situations and it will tolerate coastal gardens and chalky soils . Expect a final height of around 8m.
Our Strawberry trees are supplied at a height of 90cm- 220cm for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
Strawberry Tree Arbutus Unedo Size Options
We have three size options available. These usually are:
90+cm : Single stem, 2-3 years old 5-12 litre pot
125+cm : Single stem, 2-3 years old 5-12 litre pot
150+cm : Single stem, 2-3 years old, 10-20 litre pot
180-240cm : Single stem, 3-4 years old 10-20 litre pot
Arbutus Unedo usually comes with two shape options, single stem and bush, if we are only showing one shape in the description above then we are currently out of stock of that shape.
A single stem will have been pruned to have a clearly identified single main stem with smaller branches coming off the sides. A bush will have several main stems starting very low down with smaller branches coming off the sides.
The drawing of the Arbutus Unedo shows a rounded tree which is what it will look like if you leave it alone. The Arbutus Unedo that is delivered will be more upright and columnar but will bush out in time.

Hi Alan, The combination of competitive pricing, good quality, and superior knowledgeable customer experience (especially when dealing with a problem) is unfortunately a rare thing in online shopping.

Order what you're after and then bookmark the web page as it's very likely you'll want to return! Cheers Darrel 0816
I am delighted with my arbutus tree, which is a beautiful shape, with lots of healthy young growth and an excellent root system. It wasn't at all pot bound so it has transplanted successfully and is already making new growth. Jo Hillier 0616
Have just taken delivery of the 3 trees (Arbutus Unedo Strawberry Tree being one of them) and I have to say the quality has far exceeded expectations. Thanks for helping me with my queries – the customer support has been refreshingly outstanding. I will definitely be returning next year as we tackle a long fence that is in desperate need for some tree and shrub companions!Darrel F. 0815
Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
