This is by far the most beautiful of strawberry plants that I have ever grown. The blooms start out white or cream and change to deep vivid magenta. The plant bears fruit continuously all summer. So far the fruits have been quite small, but that may be due to the very small container they are growing in. I will change the container and see if that improves. The berries are very sweet but a bit seedy at their small size.
