Fragaria virginiana flowers

Flowering - April - May.

Habitat - Open slopes, prairies, rocky open ground, open woods, railroads.

Origin - Native to U.S.

Other info. - What else can I say? It's a strawberry plant, plain and simple. The strawberries you buy in the store, ( F. x ananassa ), are hybrids of this species and F. chiloensis (L.) Duchn. from Europe. The European strawberries have the size but no flavor and our plants have the taste but no size. The hybrid typically has both.
F. virginiana has smaller flowers than the hybrid plants, which occasionally escape cultivation in our area. The leaves of F. virginiana are typically trifoliolate but sometimes have a an extra pair of reduced leaflets also.
