Fragaria glauca (Watson) Rydberg 

Wild strawberries grow almost everywhere in the Canadian Rock- 
ies. Their large white flowers with yellow centers and the bright red 
fruits which follow them are known to all campers. Later in the sea- 
son the leaves turn red. The plants propagate by runners, produced 
after the fruiting season. A tea made from the leaves is most effica- 
cious in intestinal complaints, and its properties were known to the 
Indians, who often chewed the leaves for the same purpose. Wild 
strawberries are found throughout most of the United States and 
Canada, and also extend far southward along the mountains of Mexico. 
Long ago they were brought into cultivation, and they have been im- 
proved greatly, at least in size, by horticulturists. 

This member of the Rose Family ranges from Nevada, New Mex- 
ico, and South Dakota to British Columbia. 

The sketch was made from a specimen collected in the valley of 
Baker Creek, thirty miles by trail from Lake Louise, at an altitude of 
5,000 feet.
