This is a high maintenance plant that will require regular care and upkeep, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback.
Barren Strawberry is ideal for edging and groundcover. It thrives in woodland gardens and on shady banks, and its natural habitat is open deciduous woods.
Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates.
