A beautiful ornamental to 3,' Shrubby Cinquefoil has small, downy leaves and masses of large, yellow blossoms that remain for a long season.

Birds feed on the small berries that follow.

This shrub is native to alpine meadows, northern bogs and disturbed sites across North America and in Europe and Asia at high elevations (USDA 3-9).

It thrives in full sun and is a wonderful addition to the rock garden or an out of the way spot, as it requires minimal care.
