Bushel and Berry Introduces Three New Strawberries
Bushel and Berry, the collection of homegrown berries from Star Roses and Plants has announced the introduction of three new strawberry plants for 2021. These ornamental, everbearing strawberries are the first non-blueberry addition to the collection since the Baby Cakes blackberry plant, which was introduced in 2016.
The new strawberry varieties are:
‘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 to 9 inches 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 to 12 inches 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 to 10 inches high.
“These new strawberries are reliable with great performance in multiple regions of the country,” said Kristen Pullen, Bushel and Berry program manager at Star Roses and Plants. “They also have a quick production time of about 8 to 10 weeks from potting in greenhouse or tunnel production.”
