And they told you it was cinquefoil?

there are many varieties of cinquefoil (about 20) heres my guess:

Sharp-toothed Cinquefoil Potentilla arguta: A perennial herb with glandular hairy herbage from 30-100 cm high. The several basal leaves are compound pinnate with 7-9 leaflets, the upper leaflets obovate in shape and the lower leaflets smaller and orbicular. The margins are toothed. Individual leaves are 10-25 cm long. The inflorescence is cymose and many-flowered. It is both narrow and compact. Each flower is saucer-shaped with the 5 sepals 5-8 mm long and flared. The petals are yellow, cream, or white and obovate in shape and about the same length as the sepals.

oh. I knew there was a 5 leaved plant similar looking, but I thought that seven leaves definately made it cannabis. You live and you learn. Cinquefoil:logged in my brain.
