Barren Strawberry

Barren Strawberry

Geum fragarioides

Waldsteinia fragarioides 


A member of the Rose family, Barren Strawberry's semi-evergreen basal leaves are divided into three leaflets, similar to its true strawberry relatives. Prolific 5-petaled bright yellow flowers are borne on short branching stems. A good ground cover, this  useful woodland wildflower spreads from underground rhizomes. Combines well with Foamflower, Wild Ginger, Wild Blue Phlox and Twinleaf. Does not produce a strawberry as the name might suggest. Tolerant of acidic soil.
