I have mine in pots. They donot get allot of full sun. They have lots of babies. I just stick the runners in smaller pots. I pin them down than when they root I cut them off the mother plant. This was a hard to find plant. I love it.

F. vesca bears tiny, edible, tasty berries, but is usually used in borders. The variegated markings are very attractive in light shade areas.
