While it doesn't produce edible fruits, barren strawberry still makes a great groundcover for the shade garden. It has waxy, buttercup-like flowers and in most areas is evergreen with strawberry-like foliage.

Barren strawberry will thrive in humus-rich soil. While it can take quite a bit of sunlight, it prefers shadier cool spots out of the dry heat. Works very well in containers.

Deer resistant with few pest problems, barren strawberry is a great plant.
