A Hercules strawberry flower blooming late in June, due to the colder spring weather this year.

I ordered two Hercules strawberry plants two years ago, received them in the spring, planted them in a big bin, and placed them in the hoophouse. They loved the heat and grew from scraggly sticks that could barely be called plants into some nice-sized strawberry vines.

I think you'll remember when I expressed my disappointment about the one mail order catalog I had courageously ordered from. I ordered 10 or so plants and they arrived in a bag.
