Art imitating Life

Arbutus wallpaper designed by Kathleen Kersey for Morris & Co 1913

The Strawberry tree


  1. i have never heard of a strawberry tree. the strawberries look much different than ours from the vine!
    are the fruits edible? they sure are lovely!

  2. No they're not real strawberries but the Arbutus tree is sometimes called the Strawberry Tree because of a superficial resemblance. Although they are edible they don't apparently have much flavour. I've never tried one!
