McKays White 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.
Hailing from Wisconsin’s McKay Nursery, this rounded upright shrub debuts delicate 5-petaled, creamy white blooms from early summer ’til autumn upon an attractive, fine-textured green foil of narrow elliptical leaflets. The long-lasting pearlescent flowers coupled with close-knit deciduous foliage impart a composed classic aspect that can embellish foundations, mixed borders or en masse plantings. Undaunted by deer, cold weather, varied soil types and dry conditions, easy-care ‘Mckay’s White’ dazzles pollinators, adopts yellow and cocoa hues for fall plus appreciates a hard, late winter cutback.
