Started these plants last spring and they survived the winter fine and came back again this spring. The plants are compact and attractive with cute little berries. I do not find the taste to be so incredible as I have read about alpine strawberries. I prefer regular strawberries. My resident chipmunks love them and it sure is cute to watch them steal a berry.
