A herbaceous perennial plant belonging to the rose family (Rosaceae) Potentilla erecta is a low, clump-forming plant with slender, procumbent to arcuately upright stalks, growing 10–30 centimetres (3.9–11.8 in) tall and with non-rooting runners. It grows wild predominantly in Europe and western Asia How to get rid of: mowing and digging up the site. Manual weeding is notable for its laboriousness. With its help, you can carefully remove the roots, and it should be carried out in the early stages of plant development. Cinquefoil is able to resume growth from root scraps, so cultivating with a cultivator does not always bring an effective result. To prevent widespread weeds, deep plowing is used. It is carried out after the end of the harvest.
