Sibbaldiopsis tridentata

three tooth cinqufoil (Potentilla tridentata)

This is one of the few native plants that really thrives in arid conditions. This little groundcover will creep along gravel ridges and between rocks, flagging only in excessive heat or with excessive moisture. It even tolerates salt!
