I grow lots of this choice “Alpine Strawberry” in my backyard so I always have breakfast berries for my son. To my delight, I’ve found it also makes the nicest garden edging for both sun and bright shade! It doesn’t spread by runners but stays a tidy and dense 10” by 15.” Besides providing a lovely foil for other front-of-bed trailers, I get an endless supply of sweet-as-can-be fruit! To refresh, cut to 1” tall, side-dress with compost and it’ll bounce right back. Rich soil is best. Self-sows! Evergreen in USDA zones 8-10.
