Fragaria virginiana is a widespread wild strawberry in North America. This is the most drought resistant of the two strawberry species native to the Willamette Valley and Portland Area and is more adapted to drier sunnier locations. Give it plenty of water to establish and then it can fend for itself in most situations though it may perform better with occasional summer water. Leaves have a blue cast to them and like most strawberries this is a quickly spreading groundcover via little plantlets attached to stolons that root when then come in contact with the ground. White flowers in the spring benefit pollinators while fruit can be eaten by humans or wildlife.
