It is a very visually stunning plant...I think it would compliment a similar colored Lantana placed in the center of it with the Fragoo trailing over the edges a container

I have a strawberry exactly the same except it's called "Panda". I included it in my alpine strawberry containers (white and red berried alpines) as these trail quite well too. All are at picking level and with the alpines, we get berries well into October! The pink flowers are a real delight.

Stephie, if I'm not mistaken. The difference between 'Fragoo Pink' and 'Panda' is, the former is edible and the latter isn't.

Now I grow my normal strawberry in hanging baskets. I assume it's more beautiful with Fragoo Pink.

I have eaten Panda strawberries and they are quite good (but not as tasty as the alpines) but the flowers are mainly what I wanted anyway as I can't keep up with the alpines. There's a beach strawberry with a yellow flower that doesn't produce fruit...I use that as a ground cover near the pond. However, I am still going to look for fragoo....never turn down a strawberry!
