This is the native wild strawberry of eastern North America. The plants have trifolate leaves and produce runners which form new plants at their ends. White flowers are followed by small but sweet tasty strawberries once commonly enjoyed by country children and adults. This species figures in the breeding work done to produce some varieties of the cultivated strawberry. Grow in sun or semi-shade in well-drained soil and keep free of competing vegetation.
USDA Hardiness Zone 4-8
