What makes the Tristan Pink-flowered Strawberry different from other varieties is its compact growth habit and restrained runners. It can grow neatly in containers and pots adding beautiful decoration to patios. Hot pink flowers bloom within the dark green foliage and small 1” bright red, sweet berries are produced. The showy flowers bloom from early summer until frost making this Everbearing Strawberry both ornamental and a producer of aromatic, sweet fruit.
