Potentilla recta - Sulfur Cinquefoil, Roughfruit Cinquefoil. Sulfur Cinquefoil

Potentilla recta - Sulfur Cinquefoil, Roughfruit Cinquefoil. Sulfur Cinquefoil is an upright perennial with hairy stems to nearly 3 feet tall, found frequently along roadsides throughout most of the United States. This non-native was introduced from Europe, and is so invasive that despite its beauty is considered an obnoxious weed in Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Sulfur Cinquefoil is also known as Roughfruit Cinquefoil. Sulfur Cinquefoil has 5 shallowly-notched yellow petals. The central part of the blossom is a deeper, sulfur yellow, which give the plant its common name. In the center of the five yellow petals of Potentilla recta are a cluster of many roundish, flattened stamens which encircle the central sulfur-colored cluster of many pistils.
The palmately compound leaves of Sulfur Cinquefoil have 5 to 7 toothed leaflets on the lower leaves; the upper leaves may only have 3 leaflets. They are hairy underneath, and the lower leaves are borne on long, hairy petioles. The upper leaves may be nearly sessile. They are alternate on the hairy stem.
Sulfur Cinquefoil's several flowering branches above the erect stem can make for lovely dense thickets of the invasive plant.
