Shrubby Cinquefoil

Potentilla fruticosa ‘Apricot Whisper’
Potentilla fruticosa ‘Apricot Whisper’

Potentilla

Shrubby Cinquefoil

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.

 

<i>Potentilla fruticosa</i> ‘Apricot Whisper’

Delicate parchment-like 5-petaled flowers awash in hushed apricot pink hues and dainty thickset dark green leaves set this compact easily grown shrub apart. Promoting fine textured appeal, an attractive flood of small narrowly divided foliage garbs the versatile twiggy visage that makes an excellent hardy choice for low hedges, foundations or mixed borders. ‘Apricot Whisper’ can handle poor, sandy or gravel-strewn soil, but dislikes hot humid areas, and appreciates a midsummer trimming.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.
