Mignonette is a French type strawberry that has smaller berries and a distinct flavor and aroma. It is a compact, clump-forming, semi-evergreen perennial forming rosettes of bright green leaves divided into three ovate, toothed leaflets.
As an alpine strawberry cultivar, "Mignonette" (Fragaria vesca "Mignonette") produces berries that appear from spring until fall. The berries are significantly smaller than most found in grocery stores, but the plant that bears them require less maintenance than the more common strawberry plants. Fragaria vesca 'Mignonette' will reach a height of 0.2m and a spread of 0.3m after 1-2 years. It is suitable for edging, a ground cover, or growing in a container.
