A few weeks ago I visited the San Diego Botanic Garden and I spotted strawberry leaves but something was different about the strawberry flowers that came with them. These strawberry blooms weren’t white, they were bright pink!

Many of the plants in that garden are unlabeled and usually, this applies to the plants I’m really interested in. So I did some research on Google to figure out what these plants were. They are called Fragaria red ruby – the red ruby strawberry. They’re mostly used for ground cover, as they rarely bear fruit. They sure make for a pretty sight. Check out the amazing yellow and red pistils on the flower in the upper right corner. They look like someone handpainted them!
