Fragaria 'Lipstick'

Fragaria 'Lipstick'

Common name Alpine strawberry
Life cycle perennial
Flowers deep pink (spring-summer)
Size 4"
Light full sun-part shade
Cultural notes not fussy

Grow for flowers (tiny fruit). Will send out runners and multiply, but not invasive. We have let it ramble through our driveway bed for many years now. It brings just a little splash of color surrounded by glossy bright green leaves in unexpected places, yet is easy to pull up from places where it is less welcome.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
