Geum leaves are larger and quite different - please check and re-locate.

This is the second year I have had this plant, a named gift from a friend who started this as a seed. Plus, it most definitely is NOT a strawberry: it has red blooms all summer, provided I deadhead it.

Bet, this link will take you to the Potentillas in our PDB:

I'm sure you will identify your plant when you see the flowers of the different species/varieties.

BTW, Potentillas are cousins of Strawberries Big Grin

Definitely not the leaves of Mrs. J. Bradshaw, it most likely is a different cultivar.

This is from today. A volunteer here and I typically weed them out but this one snuck through to fruit. We have several types of Geum also. They do look quite different.
