Garden Strawberry, Strawberry, Tristar Strawberry
Garden strawberries are hybrid herbaceous perennials grown for their sweet, aromatic red fruit. Introduced in 1981 by the USDA Agricultural Research Center, Beltsville, Maryland, 'Tristar' is a "day-neutral" cultivar which produces relatively small, firm, flavorful strawberries from late spring until early fall (with a pause during hot weather). Like most garden strawberries, it spreads by stolons to form expanding clumps of three-lobed leaves.
Highly adaptable, 'Tristar' succeeds in many regions (including the Northwest, Southeast, and Northeast U.S.) if sited in ample sun and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. It is a good choice for culinary gardens, containers, or "strawberry towers".
