Irish Strawberry Tree

This tree has an attractive red stringy bark that exposes the cream-coloured bark underneath. It has white flowers tinged with pink during Autumn and Winter but can flower longer. The flowers look like bunches of little bells. The fruits appear green and then ripen to a bright red and are edible. The dark green leaves have a decorative serrated edge making this an all round beautiful tree.

A very attractive specimen / feature tree in small to large gardens. Can be used in street planting. Also suitable for colder climate gardens, should cope with frosts and light snow.

Likes a temperate climate in well drained soils. But does well in almost any soil and can tolerate drought and cold temperatures.
