i have seen wild strawberrys with small berrys in the same general location as this one. on the bluffs overlooking the ocean but i have never seen a red leaf as dark and red as this one
wild strawberry ?
Sometimes the cold will turn the leaves that color around here. Does it cold there?
that would explain it
we did have a record cold late Jan this year
i bet i will see more of these this year
That strawberry is Fragaria chiloense, Chilean Strawberry as opposed to F. virginiana, which is the common strawberry in eastern North America. I have F. chiloense and it turns almost completely red in winter!
