Q. Strawberry Tree Bark

Just had a Strawberry Tree put in my front yard in a 36″ box. Tree is about 15′ tall and the dark bark is missing in the first 10′ and starts up again where it branches. Should I be concerned outside of being miffed that it’s missing some beautiful color and texture. The tree is perfect in size and looks very healthy otherwise and will be a “keeper” absent adverse information provided.

Wow, what a beautiful tree, I looked it up! The only reference I could find that concerns missing bark, seems to be from frost damage. I'm not sure if that's a real issue in your planting zone. I would suggest you contact your local extension office (found under gov't in the phone book) for additional help on why that is happening.

Q. evergreen strawberry bush

I have an evergreen bush (which I was told is a strawberry bush). It produces small, pink droplet flowers but no berries. It now has a lot of yellow leaves (similar to black spot on roses) and a shiny residue on leaves also. I have removed all the yellow leaves and the branches they have are on. I thought of spraying it with black spot spray. Can you advise how to treat this?

Q. Strawberries

Some of my strawberries are an orange color and never turn red. They taste ripe but aren’t appetizing.

Ever bearing Strawberries can have an orange color appearance. With warm weather they will turn red.
