Description Fine Print
 
Arbutus menziesii is Canada's only native, broadleaved, evergreen tree. It is noted for its reddish brown peeling bark on mature trees that can reach 6 to 30 meters in height with an upright, open, spreading shape. The evergreen leaves are oval to egg-shaped and generally smooth, shiny green above and whitish-green below. The tree bears clusters of small white or pinkish bell-shaped blossoms that are fragrant and attract hummingbirds. The red/orange fruit are edible. The tree requires a very well drained site and is capable of handling dry conditions.
