Top Plants For Sonoma County
More tree-like than Strawberry Tree (A. unedo) with prettier rose-pink flowers late summer to winter.
A garden-worthy relative of madrone with similar moderate growth rate, dark green leathery leaves and cinnamon colored peeling bark. Pendulous, urn-shaped, rose-pink blossom clusters appear most heavily in fall and produce round yellow then red edible but bland fruits. Prune as needed to reduce density of foliage and to expose attractive bark.
