Foliage season:

Excellent strain of the delicious woodland strawberry. Forms clumping plants to 1′ x 1′ and a continuous parade of small white flowers means that the season of harvest of the small but sweet berries is equally as long. Line paths in a woodland or just stick one where ever so that when you get hot and hungry in the garden you have snack at arms length. Really easy to grow hardy perennial. Burns in full hot sites, happier with protection from blasting rays and dry soil. Rich soil with regular water leads to results. Semi-deciduous in winter. Not bothered by pests. Well, maybe dogs, Dogs will sneak some berries when you aren’t looking. I love dogs. Oregon native plant.
