Pennsylvania Cinquefoil is well suited for naturalisation projects as it is a wildflower native to North America.

The Pennsylvania Cinquefoil is capable of growing in cold, harsh conditions. The bright yellow flowers are found at the top of long stalks in small dense clusters and are ideal for attracting pollinators.
