Arbutus 'Marina' Multi


A large evergreen tree with a broad dense crown and attractive bark. The older bark peels away to reveal the 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. The flowers are followed by round, granular red fruit. Considered to be drought tolerant, but looks best with occasional summer watering.
