Potentilla centigrana Maxim. is one of species in core Potentilla group. To clarify phylogenetic position of P. centigrana, we sequenced the complete chloroplast genome which is 156,392 bp long and has four subregions: 85,479 bp of large single copy (LSC) and 18,845 bp of small single copy (SSC) regions are separated by 26,034 bp of inverted repeat (IR) regions including 129 genes (84 protein-coding genes, eight rRNAs, and 37 tRNAs). The overall GC content of the chloroplast genome is 37.0\% and those in the LSC, SSC, and IR regions are 35.0\%, 30.8\%, and 42.7\%, respectively. Phylogenetic trees show that P. centigrana is located far from core group of Potentilla, disagreeing with morphological classification.
