Fan-leaf Cinquefoil, leaf shape, September aspect at 2200 m. (Potentilla flabellifolia)
Member of the Rose family, similar in aspect and habit to
European Lady's Mantel; mat forming.
FAN-LEAF CINQUEFOIL (Potentilla flabellifolia)
Seen as emerging out movement, the beautiful form
of this Cinquefoil's fan-shaped leaves is like a
round water drop, a drop which then ripples
rhythmically along its edges. What a wonderful
variation of this Rose family member's normal
palmate, or handlike, aspect! It grows along small
streams (as pictured above), moist meadows, and
at the edges of bogs.
Eagle Cap Wilderness . . .
Join me in my campaign to bring the conservation of Nature
and the best of classical music together. The sonosphere—the
sea of sounds which surrounds—deserves as much attention and
care as our water and air!
