I recently came across this plant. I noticed it has some red berries on them that look similar to strawberries. After some research I sorta narrowed it down to two species. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.... I'm not 100% sure the plant is just limited to those two species. However, assuming it is of those two species, I'm sorta in a predicament when it comes to finding out what type it is. The Virginia berry is native to my area and the berries look similar. The plant its self-doesn't look similar. When I looked at the woodland berry they are native to my area and it's tall and lanky like the ones I have. The only difference is the fruit doesn't look similar. Any and all help is apricated.

Another side question I have is if they're editable. I don't plan on eating them but I'm just curious.

That is a mock Strawberry.

Mock Strawberry (Potentilla indica)
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Yeah, it definitely shows almost all of the similarities. I will definitely keep an eye on them to see what color their flowers are. Thank's for your help!
