This is my second year growing this plant and love it! Pretty flowers and lots of tasty strawberries
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This wonderful plant is both highly ornamental and it produces tasty fruit on ever-bearing plants. The semi-double Red flowers are gorgeous in their own right. Planting in a container will show off the fruit to best effect, but it can also be grown in gardens. Runners can develop over time, which may add a long trailing element to the plant. These runners can be trimmed back, if you prefer to do so or can be left as is.Award WinnerEdibleContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingProduces BerriesHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryAttracts:Bees

Best used in containers, where the fruit can be shown off and easily picked. However, they also work well in gardens.Maintenance Notes:
To keep your Berried Treaures looking its best, you may need to do some light cleaning of spent flowers. Keeping the soil evenly moist and using a regular fertilization program will produce the most prolific berry crop.
