    We live in Victoria and have been looking to purchase an Arbutus tree for our yard. Unable to find a single tree for sale ...any hints...?

    Arbutus menziesii? Native plant specialists, native plant special events (sales), or garden centers with a big line of native plants.

    Hi

    Try Arts Nursery in Vancouver. They found some 4" trees which they shipped to me and could find larger ones given you are closer.

    Thank you Michael, a call. Was that Art Knapps or just Arts?

    I just took a walk through the Shop in The Garden here at UBCBG and there are Arbutus menziesii for sale. I don't think they ship, but if you happen to come over to Vancouver...
