Growing information: NATIVE PERENNIAL WILDFLOWER growing to 0.3 m (1ft) by 0.3 m (1ft in). Prefers partly shaded sites. Hardy to minus 28ºC. These exquisite little berries hardly need introduction, but if you haven’t tasted the wild form you are missing something! Although F. vesca primarily propagates via runners (it is an excellent ground-cover plant) viable seeds are also found in soil and seen to germinate when the soil is disturbed (away from existing populations).
