An excellent ground cover that spreads by runners. Pinch off runners from the parent plant to create new plants. Tasty little strawberries are yielded in early summer. Harvest leaves to make a refreshing tea. Fast growing, low maintenance spreader that fills in bare spots nicely. Drought tolerant. Prefers part shade to full sun and alkaline soil. Full sun planting will yield sweeter berries.
