Potentilla leuconota D. Don var. leuconota
Yunnan: Xianggelila (Zhongdian) Xian. Haba Xue Shan (Haba Snow Mountain). N facing slope near YĆ¼gutu. Abies- Picea-Larix forest with several species of mixed evergreen Rhododendron, including R. arboreum (mostly stump sprouts - original trees cut for firewood) and R. wardii. 27°22'40"N, 100°4'36"E; 3780-3930 m.
In open, meadow-like areas in forest on slope. Lower surface of leaves silvery green; calyx green; petals yellow; filaments and anthers yellowish orange. Growing with Potentilla lineata (no. 35165), but about 40-50 times more common. Flowers of 35165 about 2X larger. Perhaps a hybrid of P. leuconota x P. lineata?.
