Alpine Strawberry (Fregaria vesca alpina)

Alpine Strawberry – Fregaria vesca alpina

Alpine Strawberry – Fregaria vesca alpina is a hardy perennial with green serrated leaves. Pretty white flowers with a yellow centre followed by small red fruit.

A useful plant to grow. Strawberry plants tolerate most positions but ensure to keep well watered. Feed when the fruit start to show.

They make a very good ground cover with their attractive leaves, ideal for edging in borders. They also look great in containers, strawberry pots and even hanging baskets where they can trail over.

The small, sweet fruit are produced over a long season.

Strawberries have long been mentioned in ancient herbals. They act as a cleanser to the liver and blood and are also used for cosmetic purposes. As well as the fruit, the leaves also have medicinal uses.
