  • Arbutus 'Compacta' is a stunning evergreen ornamental strawberry tree which will display small, bell-shaped flowers with creamy white and pink colours. As the tree matures and grows, expect red, strawberry-like fruits during the Autumn period. Trained into a ‘lollipop’ single stem, these Arbutus trees are perfect to situate in small gardens, patios or mixed borders.

When pruning is required, this should be carried out during mid-late Springtime (after flowering). This will encourage fresh, variegated growth for the following season.
