Potentilla nevadensis

Potentilla nevadensis

Common name Nevada cinquefoil
Family rosaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-10)
Flowers creamy yellow
Size 4-8"
Light part shade

Perennial native to mountainous areas in the American West. Five-petaled soft yellow flowers on lax stems above leaves that are shaped like typical cinquefoil/strawberry plants, but smaller than most we've grown.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
