      I was able to root multiple specimens of 'Strawberry Verte' from the original cuttings I received. I was surprised to see that they have been disinclined towards growing up with a strong preference towards somewhat sideways growth at a slow-ish rate (despite appearing rather healthy overall).

        Update for 2022. 'Strawberry Verte' is still refusing to grow up. Multiple trees essentially only growing sideways under the same growing conditions as many other cultivars which have normal growth habits.
