More Details:

Suggested uses: Wild Strawberry is an excellent ground cover that produces small sweet edible fruits (strawberries!) in June. It is an excellent shoreline restoration plant for sandy soils and full sun to light shade. Pairs well with open-woodland sedges. Grows well under evergreens.

Native Range: Native throughout the U.S.

Pollinators: Bees!

Flowers: Flowers are typically 3/4″ in diameter, with 3-5 flowers per plant. Each has 5 white petals and yellow centers (stigmas and stamens). Flowers typically bloom on stems above the leaves. Small, red strawberries develop later in the summer.

Leaves: Basal, palmately compound with 3 leaflets each. Noticeably toothed but the terminal tooth is shorter than the rest.  Leaves are hairy.

Interesting facts:

Food uses: Wild strawberries are edible raw, cooked, or dried. They are small, but very tasty. Plants with larger flowers will produce less fruit than those with smaller flowers. The dried leaves can be used for tea.
