Strawberry ‘Ozark Beauty’ is a favorite due to its large mouth-watering berries! In addition, this hardy and vigorous plant produces semi-firm fruit, excellent for preserves or freezing. Enjoy feasting on large crops of these exceptionally delicious scarlet-red berries from early summer until the first frost.
Platinum Performers® Strawberry ‘Ozark Beauty’ is a dormant plant selected by DeGroot, offering you the opportunity to get a head start to the season! Due to its dormant state, this plant may lack foliage until planted. There is no need to wait until after frost; this may be planted as soon as the ground is workable. Once planted, apply 6 inches of mulch for root protection. This early planting prevents transplant shock and allows it more time to develop its root system. If your plant does have foliage, protect it from frost. Depending on the climate and weather experienced after planting, this plant could take up to 4-6 weeks to break dormancy and show signs of growth.
Try adding ‘Ozark Beauty’ strawberries to a hanging basket! We recommend using a potting mix with slow-release fertilizer when planting your dormant roots in a hanging basket.
