Today I learnt to put my glasses on when buying plants. :lol: What I thought were strawberry plants were potentillas with red flowers. Will look good but I was looking forward to my strawberries.

It's easy to confuse Potentilla and strawberry. They're both Rosaceae*.
So, why not get some strawberries, too. This way you'll have more nice flowers AND later strawberries.

*Edit: This is actually not a good point. No one would confuse an apple tree with a strawberry plant. However, Potentilla and Strawberry look very similar, owing to being members of the same family.

Still, the herbaceous Potentilla varieties are very pretty at the front of a border. There is a strawberry var. which has deep pink flowers......just to confuse matters further. Can't vouch for how the fruit tastes.
