I have grown this plant for many years and it is a very useful plant for relatively difficult positions such as on the top of banks and on stone outcrops. Very colourful when in flower.

This plant was very invasive in my flower bed. On a positive note, I moved it all to a barren strip by the street and it is doing fine. Can withstand foot traffic.

This little potentilla is native to limestone areas of northern Newfoundland. I've grown it in my rockery for many years. Plants can gently self-seed but are easily controlled. They bloom here in June.
