The Alpine Strawberry "Ruegen" has intensely delicious fruit on beautiful, naturally-everbearing, compact plants without runners. Clusters of large, white flowers followed by remarkably sweet, tasty red berries, June - late fall. Evergreen in warm areas. A gourmet delight, these "fraises des bois" of legend, date to the 1700's. For containers, rockgardens, to line paths, driveways.
The compact, heavy blooming, runnerless perennial plants produce large amounts of fragrant and tasty strawberries continuously from spring through fall. Space the plants at least 18" apart or use a very large container for maximum production. Superb in containers. Will often naturalize in partly shaded well watered areas of your garden. Day-neutral, grows best in zones 5-8, but will tolerate colder climates with heavy mulching.
So So SO delicious. These are everbearing tiny little strawberries packed with flavorful sweetness. I have grown these in several garden locations and notice that they taste sweeter with more sunlight. A favorite of all who taste it.
It wintered well despite the extreme cold for this area. It is a neat compact plant that continues to do well and is a nice addition to our garden
