Potentilla atrosanguinea
   by Nora_in_Vancouver
Has small but beautiful ruby-red flowers in spring, lovely silvery edged mounds of leaves from spring to fall. An ideal low-growing edging plant for the border. Height to 18inches, but watch for much taller named cultivars (up to 48 inches), with showier flowers and more sprawling habit.
