It has creeping shoots with a carpet of semi-evergreen silvery leaves. All summer it is covered with a mass of bright red or yellow curved, beak-like flowers up to 4 cm long. Each leaf up to 2 cm long is divided into five narrow lobes.
Deep root system, forms low (35 - 40 cm), arched bushes that rise in an arc. The leaves are quintuple, with small obovate leaflets: the lower pair of leaflets have stipules. Inflorescence - head, with 6 - 7 yellow flowers.
It grows in the southern districts of the forest zone, in the forest-steppe, steppe and in mountainous districts on a variety of soils. It develops better on deeply permeable carbonate loams and sandy loams, worse - on highly podzolic and excessively moist soils.
