Fragaria virginiana (common strawberry, virginia strawberry)


Virginia strawberry fruits are itty bitty, but burst with stupendous flavour. They are so fruity and sweet. This tiny little plant is wildlife powerhouse. “Wild strawberry is a low-growing, fast-spreading native perennial strawberry vigorous enough to cover ground and suppress the establishment of invasive species in even the worst soils, though it ideally prefers sandy loams. It serves as a great alternative to lawn, tolerating foot traffic and responding well to the occasional mow. Grower beware: its vigor can also manifest as aggression, so this plant should be kept out of garden beds saved for more delicate low-growing perennials. White flowers bloom in spring and fruits appear in the early to mid-summer, very tasty. The plant spreads indefinitely by runners (stolons) which spread along the ground and root to form new plants. Plant as a ground cover, for erosion control, and/or to support wildlife. In the wild: Fragaria virginiana is commonly found growing in disturbed habitats, meadows, and on the shores of rivers and lakes.Range: According to the Biota of North America Program (BONAP) Atlas, Fragaria virginiana is documented as occurring naturally in all US states. Its distribution is documented here. The color key is located here. Faunal associates:Fragaria virginiana supports 75 different species of butterflies and moths (Lepidopterans) throughout their life cycles, supplying food for caterpillars and nectar for adult insects. It also supports numerous [other types of insects], and the fruits attract chipmunks, squirrels, and birds. Its flowers are accessible to short-tongued bees.” -Native Plant Trust
