I find Strawberry-Blite at home actually in my strawberry patch but this plant was on the golf course at Golden. Strawberry-Blite leaves are like spinach and can be eaten cooked or raw but like spinach they too contain oxalates. Oxalates occur naturally in some plants and prevent bugs from eating them. Better stick to eating the red flower clusters or better yet using them as a natural dye.

Not just another pretty flower
