Arbutus marina (Arbutus marina)

This may be a form of Arbutus andrachnoides, but whatever it is, it is beautiful. This photo was taken in Feb in Oregon and shows the dark green leaves and flaking red bark which is similar to the Pacific Madrone and much sought after. But whereas the Pacific Madrone is almost impossible to keep alive, this tree can handle cultivated garden conditions (well, not too much water) that would kill a madrone in minutes. Zone 7.
