The Barren Strawberry', also known as Waldsteinia ternata, is a wonderful ground cover that grows in full sun to part shade and prefers normal to sandy soils. It has dark, dense, evergreen, strawberry-like foliage that forms into nice mounds with a height of 4-6".
'Barren Strawberry' bears a multitude of tiny yellow flowers in spring but does not have fruit. It has green, strawberry-like foliage through the growing seasion and foliage turns a warm yellow in autumn. This plant spreads by runners and can cover a space relatively quickly.
This plant looks great when combined with Veronica 'Royal Candles', Saliva 'Marcus' and grasses.
Getting its name from its strawberry-like growth habit, it adapts to most soil types and tolerates drought quite well.
‘Barren Strawberry’ can be used to colonize banks, or use as an alternative evergreen ground cover or edging plant.
