The Dirty Gardener Arbutus Menziesii Pacific Madrone
A lovely, native, evergreen tree with beautiful cinnamon, red brown, exfoliating bark. Greenish-white, sweetly fragrant flowers are followed by pea-sized red fruits that remain on the tree well into winter. Birds love the berries. Photo by Derrick Ditchburn.
