Drymocallis arguta (Prairie Cinquefoil) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: Start the tiny seeds in a pot, gently pressed into the surface of the growing medium, in late fall to early winter and set outdoors so they can get a period of cold and then germinate when conditions are right. If you sow after January, give them an artificial cold period by putting the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months.

Prairie cinquefoil or tall cinquefoil (Drymocallis arguta, formerly Potentilla arguta) is a long-blooming perennial native to much of the central and northeastern U.S.. A basal clump of hairy, compound leaves sends up bloom stems that reach 2 to 3 feet tall, each topped with a cluster of buds. The creamy white, yellow-centered flowers open over an extended period: usually early summer to early fall. It’s not a show-stopper—only a few flowers are open on any given day during that time—but it’s a pretty and easy-to-grow addition to a native-based bed or border, and a variety of small bees and other pollinators visit the blooms. Full sun. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in September and October 2021. At least 20 seeds.
