It is included in an evolving list of plants carefully researched and chosen by RHS experts. Divided into 3 groups these lists, linked below, are maintained by a team of RHS staff and are reviewed annually.
A. unedo is a large evergreen shrub of bushy habit, with rough brown bark and dark green leathery leaves. Flowers urn-shaped, white, appearing as the strawberry-like red fruits, from the previous years flowers, ripen
A. unedo 'Compacta' is a large, evergreen shrub to about 2.5m tall and wide. May produce sprays of white, waxy, urn-shaped flowers in autumn, together with the previous year's rough-skinned, red fruit, but is often shy to flower and fruit
A. unedo f. rubra is a large bushy evergreen shrub with rough bark and dark green leathery leaves. Rosy-pink urn-shaped flowers in panicles as the red, strawberry-like fruits, from the previous years flowers, ripen
'Atlantic' is a compact, dense, free-flowering evergreen shrub or small tree with rough, red-brown bark. The drooping sprays of white, urn-shaped flowers appear in autumn at the same time as the previous year's fruit ripens from yellow to red
'Marina' will ultimately make a small, upright tree, but is slow-growing and can remain shrub-like for many years. The evergreen leaves are dark and glossy, bronzed when young, and up to 12cm long. Young shoots have red stems and older bark is mahogany, peeling to cinnamon. Small, white, urn-shaped flowers flushed with deep pink appear in large, hanging clusters in late summer and autumn, followed by yellow then red fruit
'Elfin King' is a slow-growing, compact cultivar forming a medium-sized shrub or small tree, to around 3.5m tall, with rough, shredding, red-brown bark. The small, white flowers, borne in sprays in autumn, are followed by spherical, warty fruit which are borne year-round, ripening from green through yellow and finally to red the following autumn
