Strawberry Sticks is very appropriately named! This unique & very ornamental plant produces edible strawberry-like fruits that cover its stalks all summer long. Unlike typical strawberry plants, it does have a branching habit rather than a vining habit. The berries are not quite as sweet as a regular strawberry and have a mild flavor. It's other names are also quite fitting. It gets the nickname Strawberry Goosefoot because of its unusual triangular shaped leaves that look like - you guessed it! - a goose's foot. These leaves are also edible and can be used like spinach which has earned it its other nickname - Strawberry Spinach. Whether you choose to grow yours in your vegetable garden, flower bed, or containers, they are sure to attract attention!
