Three years ago I bought and planted a small plant called a "strawberry plant." It looks like a strawberry plant except it has a single red flower (daisy like) on a (approx.) 24 in stem. It is invasive (spreads by runners) but kept in check is a beautiful flower. I have never seen this plant sold since, have no idea what it is called, and it is not shown on any of the pictures I bring up under strawberry plant. Any ideas? cj

Check on cinquefoil or potentilla (plant comes in different colors ( including many reds )and is setting up buds for me now. Hope this helps. :)

cjean, I'm moving your thread to the Plant ID forum for more guesses. If you can snag an image of it, that would probably help get it identified faster...

I'm having a hard time thinking of any plants that spread by runner and have red daisy-like flowers. But plants with "Strawberry" in their name include:

Waldsteinia ternata - Barren Strawbery
Saxifraga stolonifera - Strawberry Begonia
Duchesnea indica - Wild/Mock Strawberry
Arbutus unedo - Strawberry Tree Arbutus

Diascia has some varieties with "Strawberry' in the name (but I wouldn't say they have daisy-like flowers ;o)

Is this plant hardy for you in your zone? If so, that should narrow down the field a bit, too.

Potentilla 'Miss Wilmott' has a two tone red and yellow flower. Mine is blooming now.
