Another good evergreen shrub is Arbutus unedo, strawberry bush or tree. ... Technically an edible berry with high pectin, though not very tasty on its own (sour and rather mealy). I've heard birds like them, though the berries I saw seemed untouched even by birds. Though the large, round, red orbs are definitely very visually appealing.
