Potentilla canadensis


Dwarf Cinquefoil is a low-growing plant with 5 leaves - which is what Cinquefoil means - and 5 petals on the yellow blossom. It is rarely more than about 4" high.


You'll find Dwarf Cinquefoil growing in the fields, woods, and roadsides throughout much of the eastern United States.
