Negative braun06 On Dec 4, 2013, braun06 from Peoria Heights, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

It survives heat and cold equally well. I did not find the plant able to flower well in a mostly sunny location. Other established plants I have seen around do flower but haven't witnessed the Vanilla to Strawberry charm of the plant. The plant habit stinks, grows like a flat topped shrub that falls onto the ground as it flowers. It is rather open and does not gain strength nor grow fast. If you are wanting this plant to grow tall, you will have to stake and train it to do so.

I am very pleased with Vanilla Strawberry so far. I have 3 plants, just got them the end of June. 1 is in bloom, one about to bloom, and the other is much smaller. They grow quickly and do flop a bit with the blooms but it could be from being young. I am looking forward to next year to see how they hold up over our rough winter!
