Just an FYI. This variety has a patent pending on it, so it may not be propagated (I'm assuming the original purchaser can use runners off the plants for his/her own purpose, but not for selling or giving away). One place from which to order is White Flower Farm, but IMO they're a bit pricey.

This will be the third time I'm trying to grow these strawberries here in Houston. They just don't tolerate the summer heat. Figured I'd try them as a winter plant. We'll see how they do. :)
