Answer: You probably purchased a plant called 'Pink Panda'. It's a member of the Fragaria family, but a cross between a strawberry and a potentilla. Pink Panda's do produce edible berries, but they're not at all like real strawberries - kind of pulpy and bland in taste. Your plant is normally grown as an attractive ground cover, because of its inch-wide pink flowers. Expect only an occasional berry from your plants. Pink Panda is a vigorous plant that spreads by runners. If you clip off the runners, the plant will not multiply as rapidly, but it won't set more fruit as a result.
