A dwarf version of the strawberry tree, which ordinarily grows 15' tall or more. It has the same rich, red-brown, flaky bark, white urn-shaped flowers in late autumn, and striking strawberry-like fruit in fall and winter, but grows just 4' x 4'. Tolerates dry soil.

Good looking all year, this more compact medium shrub, for containers or tighter quarters, has shiny bright-green leaves ;, in fall, a profusion of white flowers followed by large rosy-red fruits. Sun/Med-Dry/GdDrain
