A great little plant, which will produce edible strawberries in summer provided they have a sunny spot. Unfortunately though the small fruits are not as sweet and full of flavour as their closely relatated, cultivated varieties. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful groundcovering plant with bright green, 3-palmate leaves that remain on the plant throughout the year, except in very harsh winters. A lovely addition to the edge of a cottage garden bed, or for lining an open, woodland walkway.Garden care:Cut off runners from the parent plant and transplant the new plantlets to increase stock.
