Pink-flowering Strawberries

Fragaria 'Pink Panda' is a lovely ornamental strawberry, a groundcover with rich green, toothy edged leaves.

Each plant expands its territory by sending out long shoots so is gently invasive. But 'Pink Panda' blooms early and is so pretty that I'm willing to keep an eye on it and pull out any plants I don't want.
Although 'Pink Panda' plants have been known to produce strawberries, mine never have, perhaps because they are growing in a lightly shaded site. They bloom all summer, although not as profusely as they are now.
