The Q&A Archives: Strawberry Looking Plant

Question: I am trying to find out the name of a perennial flowering plant. It has a flower at the top that looks like a strawberry. Do you know the name?

Answer: I'm guessing that it's Potentilla. These are hardy trailing plants often grown as groundcover, or used in hanging pots. The flowers can be cream to bright yellow, white, or pink to red and are very similar to the blooms on strawberry plants.
