Artist's Description

Also known as Downy Cinquefoil

Cooper Marsh Conservation Area, Lancaster, Ontario, Canada
July 11, 2010


A dismal day today in the GWN, so I felt like enjoying a little sunshine and warmth. I found this in the July archives. How long until it’s Spring?

With thanks to www.ofnc.ca:

This is another weedy introduction from Europe. Apparently it is native to Russia and has become naturalized throughout Europe and eastern North America. An erect plant with numerous yellow flowers up to 1 cm across borne in dichotomous cymes (that is branching two ways). Leaflets are digitate with 5 leaflets in the lower part of the plant, often with 3 leaflets in the upper part, soft hairy and with a grayish appearance. Margins are strongly toothed, the lower part without teeth and tapering to the base The petals are about equal to the sepals. The achenes have many longitudinal ridges. Downy Cinquefoil is found along roadsides and in waste places as weeds tend to occupy such habitats.
