The Plant Propagation Algorithm, epitomised by the Strawberry Algorithm, has been previously successfully tested on low dimensional continuous Optimization problems. It is a neighbourhood search algorithm. In this paper, we introduce a robust and efficient version of the algorithm and explain how it can be implemented to compete with one of the best available alternatives, namely the Artificial Bee Colony algorithm and we present an improved and more effective variant on standard continuous optimization test problem instances in high dimensions. Computational and comparative results are included.
