Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

21. Wild Strawberry
(Fragaria vesca L.)

21. Wild Strawberry

The wild strawberry, like garden strawberry in miniature, is common on hedge banks and in woods. It flowers from April to July, when its little red fruits ripen. These fleshy fruits, and the long runners by which it spreads, will distinguish the true wild strawberry from the somewhat similar barren strawberry, which produces dry fruits and shorter runners.
