Berried Treasure® Red Strawberry | Proven Winners

Double the Delight! Why choose between growing flowers or fruit? This wonderful plant is both highly ornamental and produces tasty fruit on ever-bearing plants. The semi-double flowers are gorgeous in their own right and lip-smacking sweet strawberry together all summer. It's a little like having your cake and eating it too. Planting in a container will show off the fruit to the best effect, but it can also be grown in gardens. Short runners can develop over time, which may add a trailing element to the plant.  These runners can be trimmed back if you prefer to do so or can be left as is. The 12-16" tall, mounding plants are just the right size for your patio pots or hanging baskets. They will flower and produce fruit the season they are planted if you buy plants or start seeds indoors, which means the plant can be grown as an annual. However, they are also quite hardy and will be perennial in zones 4-9.
