This delicate alpine strawberry produces dainty white flowers and small but tasty red fruit throughout spring and summer. It grows well in nearly all soils as long as they're free-draining, and makes a great edging plant along the front of herbaceous borders or the boundaries of herb gardens. As a low-growing evergreen, it also makes an excellent choice for ground cover, particularly in difficult shady spots. Alpine strawberries can be invasive if allowed to grow unchecked, but this particular cultivar doesn't produce the vigorous runners usually associated with the species so it's less of a problem. Alpine strawberries are self-sufficient plants that don't require much individual attention, although they can sometimes suffer from powdery mildew in dry conditions. Ensure they're watered well during the summer months.
