Ft. Laramie Strawberry Plants
Everbearing and So Disease Resistant!
Ft. Laramie is an everbearing or day-neutral strawberry, meaning that it sets 2 big crops a year -- early summer and early fall -- with intermittent berries in between. These are some of the largest strawberries you have ever seen, and the most colorful. Unlike many, the red and pink color continues all the way to the core of the berry. Juicy, sweet, and wonderfully fragrant, they're a mouth-watering delight.
And the plant they grow on is versatile and very tough. The foliage is leathery, for good resistance to nibbling marauders, and totally resistant to leaf spot. Just 8 to 10 inches high in bloom, Ft. Laramie spreads or trails 2 feet wide. It's a good choice for pouches, hanging baskets, and tall planters, its tendrils spilling down beautifully, setting blooms and berries along the way!
Developed in Wyoming (as you might have guessed from its name!), Ft. Laramie demonstrates good cold-hardiness, and also tolerates the high heat of southern and western climates. For best harvest, pinch off the blooms for the first few weeks of spring. You'll be amazed at the difference this makes to your yields! Zones 4-8. Pack of 25 plants.
