Resilient undemanding perennials cherished for their long season of blooms and attractive foliage, Potentillas endure poor soil, but insist on good drainage.
While the somewhat sprawling species traipses throughout Nepal's Himalayan Mountains, this vivacious nonshrubby cultivar makes a compact well-groomed perennial for your garden. A handsome low mound of hairy coarse-toothed strawberry-like foliage presents 1 in. wide rosy carmine flowers, each defined by a dark crimson eye and 5 heart-shaped lipstick-pretty petals on wiry branched stems. Venerating a former plant curator at the Royal Botanic Garden in Scotland, 'Ron McBeath' makes a flashy long blooming mate for Knautia 'Mars Midget' and Geranium sanguineum 'Album'.
Size: 8" – 12" high x 15" – 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
