Sun to Partial Shade
Time and Color:
White or near white blooms in late summer to early fall.
Alpine strawberry is a low-growing, compact perennial about 10" high with
a spread of 8". Flowers are round-petaled in flat clusters on a separate
stalk from the leaves. The fruit is a small, scarlet, cone-shaped berry studded
with tiny, brown seeds. They have a fragrance and taste more delicate than the
larger cultivated berries. Alpine stawberries grow quickly and are everbearing.
Once the fruit appears, the plant will continue to bear all season.
The plants are hardy but deteriorate after a few years and need replacing. Plant
in the garden as a border or in outdoor containers.
