Looking for an evergreen tree that is native to the west coast of North America? Look no further than the Arbutus menziesii, also known as the Pacific Madrone, Bearberry, or Strawberry Tree. This slow-growing tree can reach heights of up to 50 ft and has red or orange berries in the fall, as well as reddish inner bark that is revealed when the outer bark peels away. It is hardy to zone 7, requires well-drained, acidic soil and can grow in semi-shade or no shade. The Pacific Madrone is also a great choice for those looking to plant a tree that supports pollinators, as its flowers are hermaphroditic and are pollinated by bees. It is a great option for those looking for trees that produce lumber or fuelwood, while also being adaptable to coarse-textured soils and able to withstand drought conditions. Its partial shade tolerance also makes it a great option for use in light woodland settings. No matter your landscaping needs, the Pacific Madrone is a must-have for any west coast garden or forest.
