A close up of the yellow flower of Potentilla megalantha
This plant forms a low mound of broadly trifoliate leaves that are heavily veined like embossed leather but are matt rather than shiny. In early summer upward peering flowers are produced that are shallow cupped shaped and a clear-yellow with orange centres colour. In autumn it's leaves turn a lemon-yellow colour.
