In 2014 when I was seeding some alpine strawberries, one plant looked strange. At first, I was afraid it had some sort of virus which was mottling the leaves only the pattern seemed very regular. Some leaves were half white and half yellow. I planted it in isolation from my other strawberries and watched it grow… big, healthy and variegated.
It has been suggested that maybe it is a chimera. I hope it survives the winter!
