Fruitful gardening with Hanging Pink Wonder & Standing Pink Wonder

The petals are semi-double and they have a distinctive twist, giving them a unique and elegant appearance (similar to a pinwheel).

Have you always dreamt of the perfect combination of deliciously sweet strawberries and bright pink flowers? Strawberry Double Pleasures ‘Hanging Pink Wonder‘ is just the berry & bloom tantalising ticket!

Hanging Pink Wonder

‘Hanging Pink Wonder’ forms tall and often overhanging, long flower stalks full of blooms, it also produces a lot of runners, which in turn begin to flower and bear fruit immediately.

The result is a waterfall of miraculous, rich pink perfect blooms that are in no way inferior to a balcony plant, the only difference being that they are not only beautiful to look at and admire, but they also bear sweet strawberries.

Standing Pink Wonder

Strawberries

 

Ooooooohhh la la and a MASSIVE thank you to our second Double Pleasures variety ‘Standing Pink Wonder’ for making our fruit dreams come true!!!  Double the fun, double the beauty and double the taste…what more does any strawberry addict need??

Standing Pink Wonder has a slightly more delicate and compact growth with the inflorescences located above the compact foliage.  They are more stable, less long and expansive and also the runners do not develop quite as fast and frequently as with the hanging variant.

The flowers of Standing Pink Wonder are sometimes semi-double and they have a very intense, almost fluorescent pink colour.  The elongated, medium-sized fruits are characterised by a gorgeous aroma and a high sugar content.

The benefits of Standing Pink Wonder

  • A neon pink, constant bloomer, the centre of the flowers are usually much darker
  • The flower stalks are above the leaves, but are slightly finer and more upright than the hanging sister variety
  • Compact growth
  • Sweet, aromatic fruits

Have we tempted you to enjoy our strawberry pleasures … again?
