Holy Moly! I ordered some Strawberries from Edible Landscaping, and a Tristar, part of the order is HUGE! Check out this photo!
Not the best photo, but man is this plant big! Look at the size of that leaf!

May be I should order from those people my strawberry plants are very small

RE: How big do strawberry plants get!?

In that same order I ordered a Yellow Wonder that was a huge mass of strawberry goodness. But The red Wonder was about the size of a Hershey kiss, which is fine, Another looked decent sized. Each cultivar is so different. I'm having fun trying different varieties, just the appearance is striking, I have been following protocol for strawberries and removing all flowers, and they all have a lot, it has been very painful. I'll give the plants a month to establish, then I'm not removing anymore that happen to form! I think these are greenhouse grown, so I'm slowly exposing them to being outside. 4 hours today, 8 tomorrow, morning sun Friday, etc.

Here is a photo of the whole plant. The other plants are some of the other strawberries with the order. Also a small wyeberry, and at the far end of the table are 2 small elderberry bushes from another nursery, Black Lace, and Black Beauty. All I feel need acclimation, so are in for the night.
