Potentilla palustris

Cinquefoil

Useful for ground covers and borders, this group of dwarf, hardy, long-blooming shrubs tolerate a variety of soils and seashore conditions such as wind and salt. Choose from several species, hybrids and cultivars with a wide range of flower colors. Potentilla perform best in full sun, but tolerate some shade. Plant taller types near each other for support. Provide good air circulation to prevent mildew, and watch for spider mites during dry seasons. Periodic pruning rejuvenates older specimens.
