One of our favorite strawberries for containers, Toscana keeps fresh, delicious flavor right on an outdoor table or dreamily suspended over the edges of a hanging basket. It's the perfect touch to breakfasts on the balcony. Toscana delivers clusters of dark pink (nearly red) flowers that look like little wild roses, all the way from April to frost. This long flowering period brings a high yield throughout summer. We also like Toscana in annual container gardening. Its long bloom time will keep a constant companion to ensure a continual show, and it shows off the gardener's creativity in designing an annual display. Fragaria ananassa 'Toscana'
