Compact ‘strawberry tree’ packs a punch!

Well established shrubs and trees whose roots reach deep into the soil rarely need more water than Nature provides, and Evergreen offers a vast, exquisite selection of these and much more to enhance your landscape.

Arbutus unedo ‘Compacta’ AKA compact strawberry tree is an upright Mediterranean shrub with a denser branching habit and slower growth rate than the typical form. It provides year-round interest and should be planted where it can be enjoyed all year.
