Fragaria False Strawberry
Lipstick

Details 

A ornamental strawberry with showy, cherry-red flowers in spring. It is slightly mounded with luscious dark green foliage that creeps along to create a wonderful groundcover. This Fragaria was developed in 1966 by crossing the garden strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa) with marsh cinquefoil (Potentilla palustris) which has red-purple flowers. What resulted is an excellent groundcover that produces less fruit, but large pinkish red blossoms throughout most of the summer.
