This ornamental strawberry is great in a rock garden; with healthy dark green foliage and large bright hot pink flowers. It flowers from April until frost and bears edible fruit.
The plant spreads, like most strawberries, on runners, and forms a ground cover that is great with almost any perennial. The plants can be redirected to grow where you want them to. It’s best to get new plants rooted before cutting the runner to the mother plant.
Lipstick Strawberry was created in 1966 by crossing Fragaria x ananassa with marsh cinquefoil (potentilla plaustris).
The plant prefers full sun to part shade and will grow in any soil that is not too wet. Be sure not to cover the crown with soil when planting. This plant is great in window boxes and containers too.
