Arbutus x andrachnoides

Hybrid Strawberry Tree. Truly one of the loveliest of small evergreen trees and one I would not be without. Very beautiful cinnamon-red peeling bark on usually very picturesque gnarled stems.

Arbutus x androsterilis (new)

A virtually unheard of hybrid between A. canariensis and A. unedo, found occasionally wild on Tenerife, where A. unedo is an introduced weed. Visually it is closer to A. unedo, but it has unusual and distinctive slim foliage, pale pink tinged flowers and large, bright scarlet, deliciously sweet fruit. The bark is rough and red brown on young plants at least. Probably rather hardy.
