The perfect patio strawberry, looks amazing in mixed plantings. The high contrast of gilded foliage against scarlet red berries makes this regal alpine type strawberry a superb edible ornamental. The golden foliage looks excellent planted in the border, especially against traditional forest green alpine varieties. These tidy plants are a uniform size and do not produce runners. A heavy producer of super sweet fruit. Everbearing variety, often fruits in the first year, hardy from zones 5-10 and reseeds easily. Text and photo courtesy of Baker Creek.
Care: Plant 12-16″ apart with the crown at soil level. Needs rich, well-drained soil, sun to light shade, and 1-2″ of water per week.
