One Gallon 1 --
A flat perennial strawberry with gray leaves, ranges in the wilds from California to British Columbia, to Wyoming. In California it ranges from 4000 to 10,000+ feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains. As long as it has water it does not seem to care, sun or shade. Treat as a regular strawberry plant and use as a small groundcover, as it does not seem to run as far or as quickly as the other two California strawberry species. Grows along streams, in seeps or below snow fields. Grows under Pinus flexilis, with Potentilla glandulosa growing nearby.
