Fragaria vesca, Linn. (F. semperflorens, Duchesne). Alpine and Perpetual Strawberries. Erect and dark green, only sparsely hairy, the lvs. thin and light green as compared with the foregoing species, very sharp-toothed: fl.-cluster Mum 11. forking, erect: fr. firm, small, usually hemispheric, the achenes very prominent; hull spreading. Eu.—The American more slender form of this group-species, common in woods from Va. north, is var. americana, Porter (E. americana. Brit.), Fig. 1571, with ovoid or somewhat conical fr- usually with a distinct neck, and sparingly hairy rather than hairy-pubescent petioles and scapes, and thinner lvs. The true F. vesca is thought to be sparingly naturalized eastward, and probably native in many parts, particularly the white-fruited form (forma albicarpa, Brit.). The cult, forms are rarely seen in this country, but the quality is high, and they are deserving of more attention in home grounds. Variable in cult. There is a form with lfts. reduced to 1 (F. monophylla, Duchesne. B.M. 63). This type of strawberry bears more continuously than F. chiloensis and F. virginiana. in its cultivated forms. CH
