Indian Strawberry

We don’t want you to think we’ve hit our limit with Eastern wildflowers by showing this very common yard plant, but htat’s exactly why we are showing it. Indian Strawberry, Duchesnea indica is so common, and according to Miz Flora, so pesky.

“It looks like wildlife food to humans.” She twitches her tail. “But it’s not.”

“The berries are tasteless. By the time anyone figures this out, the creeping, almost vine-like plant has spread over the ground, blocking the way for anything more valuable–edible-to grow. Get rid of it!”

Ok, human readers, you heard it here! Miz Flora actually said you could get rid of a wildflower!
