  • Lisianthus 'Cinderella Pink'

    Posted by Patti Tucker

Plant Patent 8,517.'Mara Des Bois' is not an alpine strawberry, but you could be forgiven for thinking it is: the berries are small (about the size of a hazelnut) and intensely flavored, with a hint of the wildness that characterizes Alpines. Luckily, they also have the heavy production and tart-sweet flavor of a garden strawberry. It's the best of both in a single berry!A gourmet treat, this day-neutral everbearer sends out runners in the garden, establishing daughter plants to replenish itself. Expect it to reach just 3 to 6 inches high but to spread 12 to 15 inches wide in the sunny garden.'Mara Des Bois' was Introduced in France in 1991 by Jacques Marionnet. It is a hybrid of 4 varieties selected for their complexity of flavor and texture: Gento, Ostara, Red Gauntlet, and Korona. It bears freely from late spring all the way through summer, in cycles every few weeks. Absolutely magnificent!This gourmet berry is ideal for strawberry jars and hanging baskets as well as the garden. The fruit is about twice the size of alpine strawberries, and is intensely, wonderfully fragrant. A fully blooming patch of 'Mara Des Bois' has a heady, rich aroma that it shares with the entire garden.Plant 'Mara Des Bois' in full sun to light shade. It perpetuates itself with daughter plants freely, growing vigorously season after season. You will love the gourmet flavor, big production, and bright red fruit. Zones 3-9.
