Himalayan Cinquefoil

Potentilla atrosanguinea

Description:

Ruby cinquefoil has very beautiful leaves with a silvery sheen and silvery edges. They contrast beautifully with the blood red flowers. The plants form clumps of relatively tidy leaves from which the flower spikes rise in all directions. The flowers actually range from yellow to orange to wine-red. The trifoliate leaves, which are densely silver-haired and coarsely sharp-toothed set it apart from most other Potentiallas. The flowers either grow isolated or in small groups. It is found at altitudes of 2400-4200 m. Flowering: June-August.
