Commonly known as Dark Crimson Cinquefoil, Potentilla atrosanguinea is native to the Himalayas. Grey green palmate leaves are covered in silky hairs, and brilliant orangey-red flowers bloom during the summer.

Any reasonably good soil is perfect for this perennial. Plant towards the front of your borders and beds in sunny or part-shady places. After flowering remove the spent stems. Propagate the perennial through division during the spring.
