Arbutus unedo - Strawberry Tree

Arbutus unedo - 'Strawberry Tree'

A hardy, evergreen shrub or small tree that produces clusters of small, subtly scented cream flowers in the autumn. At the same time last year's fruits are ripening and it is these that give the tree it's common name as they do indeed resemble, small alpine strawberries.
