Answer: It's quite possible you have Fragaria chiloensis, more of an ornamental strawberry than one that bears fruit. These plants form low, compact, lush mats 6-12 inches high. They have dark green, glossy leaves (3 toothed leaflets) and large (one inch wide) white flowers in the spring. Fruit seldom sets in gardens, but if it does, it will ripen in the fall. The 3/4 inch berries are seedy and attractive to birds. If you want to harvest strawberries you may have to replace the plants with some June or Everbearing strawberry cultivars.
