Pleached Arbutus Unedo (Pleached Strawberry Tree) is an evergreen tree-on-stilts with dark green foliage and strawberry shaped fruits. This pleached-form tree a good choice for above fence screening. This unusual tree is native to southern Europe and Western Ireland. Despite its common name ‘the Killarney strawberry tree’ it’s not a true strawberry but more closely related to the fig tree.

Arbutus Unedo is a beautiful evergreen with serrated deep green leaves and cinnamon brown bark all year round. In early autumn, small creamy flower clusters appear attracting pollinators and eventually maturing into distinctive strawberry like fruits over the year. Flowers and fruits are often found in early winter. We sell strawberry trees in a number of styles, but this pleached version has a single clear trunk and square crown trained on a frame. They make excellent above-the-fenceline screening trees in warm areas of the UK.
