Nope. Smile Even though I'm sure this tree and Arbutus unedo grow next to each other somewhere. Tongue

We must dissent.

Final clue: it's a member of the rosids. ;)

No.

Let's see: it's endemic to an island, it's a rosid and Arbutus unedo (also known as Killarney strawberry tree) grows on the same island as this tree.

We must dissent.

RE: Botany Quiz
It's not. I suggest considering Arbutus unedo's alternative names as the most important clue. ;)
