Fragaria virginiana ssp glauca
Rosaceae, Rose family

photo taken at stony Creek on July 1
But the strawberries grow everywhere! Just the fruit best at Stony.

Fragaria? fragile or fragrance, maybe both?
virginiana - hmmm... you know i didn't study Latin or anything,
so does this mean from Virginia(State) or referring to virgin as in... pure?
glauca - sea green

Apparently, our only wild strawberry in the Yukon has leaves more blue-green than other species.
