Potentilla x tonguei
This is a large genus, including rightly popular shrubs that flower all summer, as well as many smaller plants, suitable for the rock garden. They are known as cinquefoils, although not all have the leaves divided into five leaflets. Sibbaldia and Sibbaldiopsis are closely related, both having the tips of the leaves divided into three broad teeth.
Potentilla x tonguei makes low clumps, with trailing stems spreading in all directions, with lots of apricot-coloured flowers with a bright-red eye.
