Potentilla glandulosa - Sticky Cinquefoil

In Southern California Potentilla glandulosa can often be found on North exposures and in areas that are moist during at least a portion of the year. The Sticky Cinquefoil does well in the shade of the Coast Live Oak, but can be found at higher elevations up to 12,000 feet. Potentilla glandulosa will perform quite well in full sun if given enough water. The Sticky Cinquefoil grows up to 2 feet tall and wide. The pale yellow flowers of Potentilla glandulosa are produced in the mid to late Spring and well into the Summer at higher elevations.
