This is my Hearts A Bursting bush, sometimes known as a strawberry bush. It is showing its fall colors. The seed pods open in the fall and the seeds, usually 3-5 in each cluster resemble M&Ms. The recent rainy weather (Trinity, NC) has made the leaves almost white this year! This is a plant that is native to the upper piedmont of North Carolina. I hope to propagate some cuttings from it this year.

I planted an euonymus americanus last fall. In spring it was full of flowers. The flowers never bore fruit.

The plant is about 3 tall, but does not have new growth, branches, or leaves. It is in a semi shaded place.

Sometimes fruit plants take three years to bear fruit.

Normally strawberry plants are so easy to grow and do not take a lot of work. However, you should know that you'll need to give the plants some food in order to help them out. In the spring use Growmore. You should use 20 ounces for a square yard. Then when the plants start to produce flowers you should give the plants a liquid potash feed such as a tomato feed every 7 to 14 days. This should do the trick and you should have strawberries every year.
