(a.k.a. rough-fruited cinquefoil)
Sulphur cinquefoil was introduced to the United States from Europe. It is considered invasive, and it readily takes to disturbed areas and roadsides. It is similar in appearance to other cinquefoils, growing to about two feet in height.
The flowers are approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter with five petals. The leaves are palmate, with five to seven elongated leaflets meeting at a central point. Leaf edges are toothed. The plant grows at elevations of up to 5,000 feet.
