I checked the repository.  They say material is available.  Actually, even
though she is going to expand the number of plants, she is still just one
person and one site.  JMO if more people take it up and plant it, the future
is more secure.

I love the story behind it, but I'm finding it a little hard to believe that
there would only be 3 plants left at NCGR & then they sent them to her...


Here's what wikipedia has to say about it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_strawberry


This article suggests that it was mislabeled in several of the USDA
collections.

Gotta love a juicy mystery.
