Indian Strawberry, False Strawberry
Mock Strawberry is a non-native, invasive perennial plant found in much of Virginia. It is in the rose family and has yellow flowers and small red fruits. There is disagreement as to how it should be classified, with some sources saying it is in the genus Potentilla. Mock Strawberry was introduced to the United States as an ornamental flower. It is native to India, China, Japan and Indonesia, and its scientific name indica means "from India".
