This distinctive native evergreen, with its fleshy leaves and reddish bark, will eventually grow into an impressive small tree. Arbutus produces racemes of white flowers in late summer, which in turn produce rounded fruit.

Cultivation tips: Arbutus prefers an acidic soil that is well drained. Plant in a position that is sheltered and receives full sun - ideally south facing. Prune to shape in spring. Arbutus is well suited to seaside areas.
