A large shrub, 12-15' in height. Delicate, greenish-ivory, urn shaped blooms appear in October, at the same time the fruit of the previous year are ripening into bright red, strawberry-like berries. Leaves are dark green and serrated, 2-4" long and half as wide. This beautiful, well-behaved plant takes well to pruning or looks grand left to grow in its own artistic manner.

Large shrub to small tree, to 15' in 15 years and 30' eventually, with small pearly pink flowers in mid to late winter, followed by bright orange and red fruits -- food for birds and jam fruit for the enterprising cook. Full sun to dappled shade with good drainage and little summer water once established. Cold hardy in USDA zone 8.

A large shrub with shiny green leaves all year, the Strawberry Tree has rough scaly red-brown bark. The late summer pancles of white/pink flowers change to nickel-sized red orbs in the late fall. zone 7
