Bushel and Berry, the collection of berries from Star Roses and Plants, is excited to announce the introduction of three new strawberry plants for 2021. These ornamental, everbearing strawberries are the first non-blueberry additions to the collection since the Baby Cakes blackberry plant was introduced in 2016.
The new strawberry varieties are as follows:
- Rosy Belle is both beautiful and tasty with rose, pink blooms and sweet berries that grow abundantly from spring until frost. It’s perfect as a border plant or grown in pots. Rosy Belle has a cascading habit that will reach 6-9” high.
- Scarlet Belle has scarlet red blooms with yellow centers that produce juicy strawberries all season. Plant in patio pots, hanging baskets, or garden beds for a rewarding and scrumptious crop. Scarlet Belle has a cascading habit that will reach 8-12” high.
- Snowy Belle is a deliciously sweet treat to grow in the garden and enjoy at the table. This strawberry variety has big, white flowers that produce an abundance of flavorful fruit. Snowy Belle has a cascading habit that will reach 8-10” high.
“These new strawberries are reliable with great performance in multiple regions of the country,” says Kristen Pullen, program manager. “They also have a quick production time of about 8-10 weeks from potting in greenhouse or tunnel production.”
With edible gardening continuing to rise among consumers, these compact, everbearing strawberries are a versatile addition to any garden space that will offer fruit all season.
