Mignonette Alpine Strawberry

(Fragaria vesca)

Full Sun to Full Shade. everbearing, small red intense flavored berries to 1″ long, does not runner, attractive bedding plant

This French delicacy is a lovely bedding plant in addition to its super sweet and unique flavored berries. Fruits are often up to 1″ long in the spring when the plants put on their heaviest crop, and they continue to produce throughout the summer, although fruits will be smaller and less abundant in hot dry conditions. Unlike conventional ever-bearing strawberries, alpine strawberries do not send out runners, but slowly clump out from the base of the plant, and they remain attractive throughout the summer, making them more practical for landscape beds.  They will often self-seed new plants nearby that you can use to expand your planting. . .
