Mountain strawberry grows naturally throughout North America except Mexico. Together with the beach strawberry, Fragaria chiloensis, it was a parent plant for the domestic strawberry. In California it is found in the Sierra Nevada and Cascades. This member of the rose family grows as a little clump compound leaves with three round leaflets with serrated edges. Bright flowers with yellow centers adorn the plant in the spring. The little strawberries are one of our better native berries. Mountain strawberry spreads by seed but mainly by vine-like stolons that move out in every direction. The stolons bear little plantlets that will readily root in moist soil.
