It reminds one of strawberry leaf… I know this as  cinquefoil … a very popular herbal with some schools …
also a prolific ground cover because of the prostrate habit of spread and growth;.. esp in southern california gardens… it will grow where the ubiquitous iceplant wont…
I even had a houseplant cinquefoil… but it was of erect habit… dont know its botanical binomial though…
thanks for reminding me of it…
