Sticky cinquefoil is a bit of a chamelion, varying dramatically in appearance depending on how much water and sunlight is available. It can grow on rocky windy ridges (like Waterworks hill), where it is short and compact with dense clusters of white large-petaled flowers, to moist gulches (like Wood's Gulch) where it is tall and with slightly yellow flowers.The toothed pinnate leaves turn deep red in the fall.
The varsatility in habitat, combined with a very non-aggressive habit mean you can plant this species with just about anything. It looks especially nice with penstemons and clarkia.
