Woodland Strawberry plants are native, low-growing, ground-covering perennials which produce small, sweet, edible fruits. The fruits of Woodland Strawberry are conical, with the seeds projecting out of the surface rather than being imbedded in the fruits as is the case with Wild Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana.) These plants are adaptable to a wide range of habitats and will spread by runners to create clonal colonies. They prefer partial sun, and will tolerate full shade with reduced flowering and fruiting.
The flowers of Woodland Strawberry occur throughout the summer and attract numerous bee species which cross-pollinate them. The fruits of Fragaria species are consumed by mammals, turtles, and at least 53 species of birds. The plant also supports many Lepidoptera.
