Abstract: Plenteous ethnotherapeutic properties and pharmacological actions have been attributed to Potentilla fulgens Wall. ex Hook. (Family- Rosaceae). It is one of the highly valued indigenous medicinal herbs of higher Himalaya. Biomedical reports have indicated presence of medicinally important chemical constituents represented by polyphenols, tannins, flavonoids and triterpenoids in the genus. Pharmacological studies report that P. fulgens possesses anti-hyperglycemic, hypoglycemic, anti-hyperlipidemic, antitumor, antioxidant, antiinflammatory and antiulcerogenic properties thus supporting its ethnotherapeutic use. In view of immense medicinal importance of the plant, this review aims to coherently discuss the results obtained from several studies on its chemical constituents, pharmacological use, cultivation and conservation strategies.
