Searching Genus for Potentilla

Large group of perennials, herbs and shrubs comprising 500 species, found throughout the northern temperate and frigid zones. Strawberry shaped leaves and elegant, 5-petalled rose-like flowers in white, pink, yellow, orange or red.
Potentillas need as much sun as you can give them and do best in poor, well-drained soils. In fact some seem happiest when baked and starved – too rich a soil they become very leggy with few flowers.

POTENTILLA fragiformisSummer2823
30cm  Zone: 4
Yes, yes, we know that P. fragiformis has ceased to exist as a valid species; having been swallowed up by P. megalantha. So, why are we listing it? According to the Flora Russica, these are still two distinct species; fragiformis being native to coastal areas of Chukotka and Kamchatka, Russia (and recently discovered in Alaska, to be added to their AKNHP list of rare plants for the state). Our seed comes from plants originally grown from wild collected Kamtchatka seed. Leaves are smaller and narrower than P. megalantha. The bright yellow flowers are also smaller, but more plentiful. The two also do not seem to hybridize. And that's the answer to the question.
