The Wild Strawberry (Fragaria vesca) is the ancestor of garden strawberries. It has white flowers from April to July, and it produces very small and very sweet strawberries. It is common in dry, grassy places, and in woods, though you might not notice it unless you look for it.
Typical habitat is along trails and roadsides, embankments, hillsides, stone- and gravel-laid paths and roads, meadows, young woodlands, sparse forest, woodland edges, and clearings. Often plants can be found where they do not get sufficient light to form fruit. In the southern part of its range, it can only grow in shady areas; further north it tolerates more sun. It is tolerant of a variety of moisture levels (except very wet or dry conditions). It can survive mild fires and/or establish itself after fires
