Fragaria vesca

Fragaria vesca - A Delightful and Edible Perennial Fragaria vesca, commonly known as Wild Strawberry, is a delightful perennial that produces sweet, edible berries and serves as excellent ground cover. Known for its charming white flowers and delicious red fruits, this plant is perfect for woodland gardens, borders, and naturalized areas. Fragaria vesca adds both beauty and utility to various garden settings. The standout feature of Fragaria vesca is its ability to produce tasty, red strawberries. Blooming from spring to early summer, the plant's white flowers give way to small, sweet berries that are loved by both humans and wildlife. The bright green, trifoliate leaves form a dense mat, making this plant an excellent choice for ground cover. Its low-growing habit and spreading nature help to suppress weeds and stabilize soil. Caring for Fragaria vesca is straightforward, making it suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. Plant Wild Strawberry in well-drained, moderately fertile soil and ensure it receives plenty of sunlight, though it can also thrive in partial shade. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. To encourage fruit production and maintain a tidy appearance, remove spent flowers and any damaged leaves. In late autumn, a light mulch can help protect the plant through winter. With its low maintenance needs and dual-purpose beauty and fruit, Fragaria vesca is a wonderful addition to any garden, providing sweet berries, attractive ground cover, and supporting beneficial pollinators.
