This is growing across a patch of grass in my backyard and it looked a lot like strawberry plants, but the spread of them isn't viney like the strawberry plants I have cultivated in the past. If it is an imposter...a strawberry look-alike, what is it?

A Fragaria, i'm sure, but for the species I know nothing, perhaps some wild strawberry like F. virginiana or other

Is there such thing as a cinquefoil that has white flowers? Although this plant doesn't seem to be growing tall, like cinquefoil. It's just that these plants seem like they should be weeds and they don't have the vining characteristic that strawberries do, so it's hard to believe that they are actually strawberries.

If that's the case, perhaps we are dealing with Potentilla sterilis, the tip of the leaflets has shorter tooth at the mid-end consistent with P sterilis. its just the center bit yellow that made me think of Fragaria.

In the past I grew 'golden alexandria' and 'white delight' strawberry, they are great in tropics and never produce stolon, this made me think perhaps not all strawberry wanders. (although the species might always...?)

But, if it is strawberry, you should have seen fruit in the past,... so indeed, may be it is potentilla

I may just have to wait and see! This is our first spring in this house, so I'm continually surprised by flowers popping up here and there.
