Indian Strawberry, Mock Strawberry

This pretty little plant is not a true strawberry. The blooms are yellow, the fruit is spongy and not edible. It is from Asia and it works as a ground cover and can even be used in hanging baskets. It is growing around the "little house", which is supposed to be my workshop. There is a wild strawberry (woodland strawberry) and you will know it by white flowers and fruit that is said to be very tasty.

  1. That I would like for a ground cover. I am thinking about having a weed garden. Do you have to keep the "weeds" out of the weed garden? Silly me.
