The Dwarf Strawberry Tree is a large, shrubby, evergreen bush growing about 12 feet tall and 8 feet wide, with several low trunks covered with reddish-brown flaking bark. The leathery leaves are a rich dark green, forming a dense, rounded crown. This plant flowers in fall and early winter, with clusters of while hanging bells. The fruit takes a year to develop, so the large strawberry-like red fruits ripen alongside the opening flowers in a unique display. Loving sun, drought and dry soil, this bush is perfect in xeric gardens, and beside the ocean. It thrives in areas with hot, dry summers and mild winters.

  • Handsome leathery leaves on a rounded shrub
  • Beautiful red-brown bark on picturesque trunks
  • Bell-shaped white flowers in hanging clusters
  • Flowers in Fall along with the edible red fruits
  • Excellent xeric plant and for the seaside

Full sun gives the best results with the Dwarf Strawberry Tree, and it grows easily in all well-drained soils, enjoying poor soil and rocky places. It is usually free of pests and diseases and untroubled by deer. The fruit are popular with birds and small mammals, and are edible, although best cooked into jams or fermented into wines. Pruning is not needed, or desirable, although you can remove some lower branches while they are young, to highlight the attractive stems.
