Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).

I think Dasiphora fruticosa

Yes Dasiphora fruticosa from Rosaceae previously it was Potentilla



Dasiphora fruticosa (L.) Rydb. Fl. Prairies & Plains Centr. N. Amer. 417 (1932).

Potentilla fruticosa L. Sp. Pl. 1: 495. 1753
Type: Lectotype – Herb. Clifford: 193, Potentilla 3 (BM-000628648)


VOF Week: Potentilla for id from Valley:
This was shot from the valley, distinct in having trifoliate leaves….which Potentilla? sp. is this….

Really an interesting catch. I couldn’t find any perennial Potentilla with digitate 3-foliate and completely entire leaflets.

I have also found the same … and curious to know what it can be 🙂

Potentilla fruticosa L.

Yes … You are right. Perhaps digitate trifoliate leaves confused me. The species generally has pinnate compound leaves. The woody habit is, however, perfectly fine for this species, as is the huge variation.

This Shrub was spottted en-route Hemkund Sahib around 1 KM from Ghangaria. It was on rocky soil and bit away from the main path. Photographs are mostly long shots.

Potentilla fruticosa I hope

I think the same as …, Potentilla fruticosa.

Cultivated flowers seen in Sacramento on 7/10/14.
Color was a bright yellow.
On searching, these could be Potentilla.

probably a portulaca cultivar
would be nice to see the center of the flower up close and a lateral view

I think this should be a Potentilla..

Thanks for suggesting Potentilla.
Could be could be Yellow Gem Potentilla or Potentilla fruticosa ‘Yellow Bird’.

Potentilla species.

Certainly a Potentilla (Rosaceae). Probably Potentilla fruticosa or allied species of shruby Potentilla.

Pl. check with images at Dasiphora dryadanthoides & Dasiphora fruticosa
To me it looks different from images at Dasiphora fruticosa 

Yes, P.fruiticosa var. fruiticosa
