Wild strawberry is a low trailing winter perennial, spreading by stolons. The leaves of wild strawberry are similar to cultivated strawberries. The leaves are trifoliolate on long hairy petioles. The leaves have toothed margins. The flowers which are produced from April to June are white with yellow stamens and pistils, and contain five petals. The fruit is a red strawberry with many small seeds in pits on the surface. Wild strawberry reproduces from seed and from runners. Each plant forms multiple runners which root at the nodes and form new plants. Wild strawberry is found throughout most of the United States and Canada.
