I am looking for two varities of wild european strawberries, fragaria moschata (Musk strawberry) and fragaria viridis (Creamy/Green strawberry?). Does anyone know of a nursery/garden store in Portland, OR/Hood River, OR/The Dalles, OR that has either/both of these species? Or perhaps you live in Oregon and have a clump of one of these varieties to spare?

THANKS!

I was going to suggest One Green World Nursery, which now has a retail outlet in Portland (6469 SE 134th Ave, Portland), but they don't seem to be carrying the Musk Strawberries anymore. They do have some red varieties of the Alpine Strawberries, though. This group does well in semi-shady areas and is perfect for permaculture. Their website is onegreenworld.com.

Raintree Nursery in Morton, Washington, does carry a wide selection of Musk Strawberries. They are a pricey nursery but they can deliver and they have high quality stock (usually). They also have yellow-fruited and white-fruited versions of the Alpine Strawberries. The website is:

Hope this helps!
