A Bit More

A stunning evergreen, Arbutus ‘Marina’ is among Boething Treeland Farms’ top 20 most popular trees. Of “uncertain parentage” this hybrid is coveted for its moderate size (30 feet tall and equally wide) and its dependable performance in any number of climates and conditions. Arbutus varieties have been spotted all over Europe and North Africa but most often on the dry regions around the Mediterranean Sea. Suited best to Western Garden Zones 8, 9, and 14-24, it requests only full sun and occasional water, once established. Its growing pace is moderate to slow, allowing ample time for shaping over the years to achieve exactly the right structure. Attractive large dark green leaves are a handsome red when new. In the fall and winter, pretty urn-shaped pink flowers clusters that resemble elaborate dangling earrings appear at the same time as the strawberry-like red to yellow fruit. This is an unusual alternative to the expected fall leaf color display. The peeling red bark is a rich textural and colorful design element in the garden.
