I am finding huge numbers of five-petalled ones again this year - they were pretty absent last. Does anyone have inside information please?

Are you sure you are not looking the hybrid P. x suberecta or maybe P. anglica? You can find ID tips on them here - - click on the Potentilla link to download the PDF document.

If it is real P. erecta then I don’t know, the plants around here all seem to be 4-petaled as usual.

Thanks…Yes, I’m certain; both heads on same frond. A picture will come here later. This Format will eventually become HOPELESS as replies will appear Chronologically NOT beneath the question.
So maybe it’s BAD IDEA here - I am hoping @miked is on the case.
