    Features

    Garden VALEDICTORIAN.

    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.
