Virginia-native  Wild Strawberry

(Fragaria virginiana)

Full Sun to Full Shade. Fast growing groundcover with nickle-sized berries

This is a delightful, shade-tolerant, extra low-growing strawberry that readily fills the role of quick-growing groundcover in landscape beds.  It will weave around and through taller elements in your beds and cover the soil to prevent weeds from coming up.  Less susceptible to “overcrowding” die-out that commercial strawberries have after 5 or 6 years.  Pretty white flowers cover the mat of leaves in the spring, and are followed by delicious little red berries with a unique “waffled” texture.  Not as small as you might think, about the size of a nickel.  Self-fertile. . North American native plant.

3″ pots $3.50, Quart pots $7
