Herbaceous perennial ranging from 6 inches to 1 foot in height, Woodland Strawberry blooms a white flower with a yellow center from May to July. The flower is followed by a small strawberry (looks different than what you buy at the store). The strawberry is very attractive to birds – especially ground-dwelling berry eating birds like the Veery, Gray Catbird, and American Robin. The flower and strawberry will also attract insects – which will in turn attract insectivorous birds.
