I am buying plants for a plant sale in Minnesota.

Two different growers are offering /Potentilla verna/.

When I look up that name on "The Plant List," it says it is a synonym for 
/Potentilla grandiflora/.

One horticulturist suggests the one called /P. verna/ 'Nana' is /P. 
neumanniana/. It is a spreading plant with small yellow flowers.

The other is called /P. verna/ 'Orange Flame.' This one is mound forming and 
has larger flowers with an orange spot at he base of the petals. Is this one 
really /P. grandiflora/?
