Dwarf Cinquefoil

Very low-growing, spreading silvery stems with dark green palmate leaves and tiny flowers. The flowers are five-petaled, yellow blooms on a short upright stalk. This plant sends out runners much like its cousin, strawberry, and also produces a tiny berry that birds eat. Very tough, drought tolerant, good for eroded areas and slopes.
