Strawberry plants are short, with an average height of 8 inches, depending on the chosen variety. Each plant forms a crown of leaves, with a 9- to 10-inch spread, and a shallow root system. Strawberries, which grow best in full sunlight and well-draining soil, should be spaced 12 to 15 inches apart.
