Duchesnea indica-Mock Strawberry

Why anyone would want to propagate Duchesnea or Mock Strawberry is beyond me because in NC it is considered a weed that grows rapidly in the lawn, but it can be transplanted any time of the year by digging up the rooted runners. It resembles strawberries with its flower, although yellow and its leaves, and by the tiny fruit which is not edible. Unfortunately it is deer resistant, blooms throughout most of the growing season, is evergreen and reaches a height of 2"-4". If you have an area where nothing else grows either sun or shade that has ample moisture this could be your answer.
