Plant ID


Hi all, I was given this plant ad have no idea what it is. Does anyone else know? The leaves look a bit like Strawberry and the flowers are about 3-4cm in diameter. It is just finishing flowering but only flowers for a couple of weeks. It doesn't fruit but has tall leggy stems which need supporting. Here's a pic. Thanks loads, Mel

    Could it be potentilla? I can't make out the leaves too well on the pic so wouldn't like to say for sure...

    The leaves would help. so many flowers look much the same in isolation


    Aha! Thanks, Victoria Sponge! Having done a bit of googling, it looks to be a Potentilla 'William Rollison'. Super.

    Could it be geum Mrs Bradshaw?


    Don't think so Gardenmaiden, the leaves don't look quite right.

    Did wonder myself whether it was a Geum though.

    The potentilla pics really fit.

    it looks just like my geum but I dont know the name.

    Hi from Kingswinford in the West Midlands

    Like I say, the leaves don't match the geum.
