A charming small evergreen tree with long pointed glossy dark green foliage that sets off the pendent white flowers that appear in autumn on older plants. The flowers open at the same time as the strawberry like fruits from the previous year’s flowers mature. Mature specimens have attractive ‘shaggy’ peeling brown bark on the stems. An excellent garden worthy plant that also does very well near the coast. 6 metres eventually although its size is often smaller and can be restricted.
