identify my plant please!

I have a plant that is fern like in leaf structure but the leaves are not fern shaped... it has trailing things coming off it with more leaves growing on them. Can anyone help me identify it? I am currently trying to figure out how to upload a picture. Thank you!

    Can you see a little green tree icon in the box where you write?

    If so, press that, then select, then upload, then save.image

    I think that's Potentilla anserina, silverweed. The manner of growth you describe sounds right as well.

    Also think it may have been renamed and now called Anserina something, maybe argentina 

  • So this is a weed?! My husband stole it from a gardens we visited. useless men!

    Wait for a second opinion kirst but that's what it looks like to me.

    A suitable reward for nicking someone else's plant I think

  • LOL yea I just googled that name you gave me and it sure looks like that. Thank a lot!
