Wild Strawberry Characteristics
Wild Strawberry grows well in moist, well drained soil. It grows outward by long reaching arms, also called runners, that will periodically root. They grow small yellow/white flowers and will simultaneously grow small edible fruits. The fruits are so small, however, that this plant is best grown for aesthetic purposes rather than to harvest.
Wild Strawberries are best used as ground covers and edgers.The fruit is so small that it does not attract deer, but the plants are great for pollinator gardens.
Watering is required during the hottest months of the summer, and soil should always be moist but well drained. Some protection in the form of mulch or raked leaves should be added in the winter.
