Alan, I think your right. I should have recognised that one for sure. I have a Monarch's Velvet planted here. I always think of them as Cinquefoils, potentilla threw me off.

Cinquefoils! I think that might be what she called it!!! Is Monarch's Velvet the common name??

No, Potentilla is the common name. Monarch's Velvet is the red variety that I have.

Ok, it was lame AND incorrect. I apologise. I was momentarily silly.
