Potentilla thurberi

An elegant beauty with velvety, red petals.

Native to moist meadows of the southwestern U.S., this elegant perennial wildflower produces beautiful mounding basal foliage and velvety, deep-red blooms on branching, wiry stems. The five-petaled flowers are very attractive to pollinators and bring long-lasting color to the mid-summer landscape. Blooms the second year and can be propagated via crown division. An excellent choice for rock gardens and sunny perennial borders.
