Quick Overview:

If you are looking for a native groundcover that is durable and carefree, Geum fragarioides is your plant. Strawberry-like dark green foliage is semi-evergreen and dotted with bright yellow flowers in early to mid spring. Growing only 3”-6” tall, barren strawberry spreads by rhizome over time. It out-competes weeds and spreads non-aggressively. The tough foliage affects a dappled bronze-red coloring in fall, adding to its multi-seasonal appeal.
