Pontentilla's promise delicate 5-petaled flowers that entice the pollinators from early summer ‘til fall plus attractive easy-care deciduous foliage that’s virtually pest-free. Undaunted by deer, varied soil types and occasional dry conditions once established, Cinquefoil’s dainty bearing exhibits superb winter hardiness, but pouts when exposed to southeastern heat and humidity.
Hailing from the lower slopes of the Himalayas, this strong perennial is named for its vibrant saucer-shaped blood red flowers borne on widely branching leafy stems. The neatly toothed long-petioled silver-gray foliage sports silky hairs on the upper surface and a white tomentose below. Well-suited for a front or midborder location, Potentilla atrosanguinea’s good-looking bearing performs best in cool summer areas and tolerates dry conditions once established.
