Botanical Name:
Arbutus canariensis
Common Name:
Canary Islands Madrone
Description:
This tree has bold foliage to 15cm long, and large upright pannicles of white bell shaped flowers throughout the year, followed by red strawberry like fruit. The bark is also a feature being dark orange in most seasons, but with extreme heat and sun it can become a mid-purple. Like gum trees the bark is smooth and sheds annually. Wind and heat tolerant, but would prefer weekly to fortnightly irrigation.
