Plant A Day – Virginia Strawberry

Virginia Strawberry Fragaria virginiana

Yum yum!  Nothing like Wild Strawberries in the summer.  They’re smaller than the garden variety, but make up for it in flavor.

This plant is not uncommon in a variety of habitats.  I guess I see it mostly along trails in the grass which isn’t mowed too often.  It’s a low growing plant, so it can get lost and out-competed in taller vegetation.
