Wild Strawberry: Sometimes, the simplest things in life can offer the most extraordinary pleasure--the wild strawberry plant is one example of this.
The North American native plant often creeps up in the wild in the most unexpected places--along a gravelly roadway, at the edge of a wooded area, or in the middle of the lawn. Seeing those ruby red berries peeking out from their greenery is always a delightful surprise.
Instead of hoping to find a wild strawberry or two in the late spring, you can grow them and be confident you will get to enjoy their sweet, juicy goodness. TN Nursery proudly grows myriad hardy native perennials, including the wild strawberry plant.
Not only do wild strawberries provide you with tasty berries, but the plants also make an attractive ground cover.
Wild strawberry plants have trifoliate, dark green leaves. The flowering stem shows off with five-petal white flowers with a yellow center in the late spring. The flowers emit a lightly floral aroma that attracts bees and pollinators to your yard. Of course, the blossoms later give birth to beautiful red berries.
The plants spread quickly, producing runners from the root system's crown. The runners dig into the earth nearby and create a new plant; some gardeners call this seedling a daughter plant. This cycle continues all season long, forming a dense mat of dark green foliage that stays green through the fall. The plants go dormant during the cold, shorter days of late fall and winter, and wake up in early spring.
Besides being prolific, the wild strawberry plant is easy to grow. It thrives in most growing zones in the continental United States and requires nothing more than full sun or partial sun, springtime fertilizer, and water if you experience drought. In autumn, gardeners in colder zones blanket their wild strawberries with a cozy layer of mulch.
With minimal care, you can have a sizeable wild strawberry patch within a year or two.
Reimagine the wild strawberry plant. Don't think of it as a cute plant you encounter once in a while in nature. Instead, consider it a healthy ground cover plant you can cultivate in a sunny garden. Order your wild strawberry plants from TN Nursery today.
