Shrub + Tree
Arbutus Marina is one of our favorite medium-sized, evergreen trees and shrubs for the Bay Area. It grows with a broad dense crown. Growth causes the older bark to peel away from the trunk and branches revealing beautiful shiny red new bark underneath. The pendulous clusters of urn-shaped white-blushed-pink flowers are produced year-round along the coast with peaks in spring and fall. Flowers are followed by red gritty fruit that is edible but not very tasty. It will be challenged in compacted soils such as DG. And it can also be a bit messy as flowers, fruit, spent inflorescences, twigs, and bark drop year-round. Consider installations with easy access for clean-up and maintenance.
