Strawberry Trees from the costal humid areas of the Mediterranean, the USA and Mexico. All have laurel like, dark gree, shiny, leathery foliage and hundreds of small white bellflowers in autumn. Red strawberry like fruits develop in winter and are edible. All species prefer a rather loam-free soil on a peat basis with some sand added for a better drainage. In mild regions they may be planted out to a protected, sunny spot in the garden, alternatively grow in containers and keep plants drier and in fully sun in winter at a minimum of some 5°C.
Sow flat at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year in a well drained, humus rich, sandy soil in a sunny spot. Keep soil always slightly moist.
All are USDA Climate Zone 8.
20 seeds per package.
