Alpine Strawberry, also known as Fraises des Bois or Woodland Strawberry, has white flowers and small crimson berries that are very flavorful when fully ripe. Thomas Jefferson sowed three rows of seeds for Alpine Strawberry on March 31, 1774. In a letter to James Monroe some twenty years later, Jefferson included Alpine Strawberry as one of the "three objects which you should endeavor to enrich our country with."

This European wildflower makes a compact, mounded plant with few, if any, runners, and produces fruit throughout the growing season. Sow seeds, barely covering, outdoors in spring or early autumn in a sunny, well-drained location, or sow seeds in pots and then transplant to the garden. USDA Zones 3-9.

Approximately 55 seeds per pack.
