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.
The sparkling flood of star-shaped creamy-white blooms amid a well-branched bushy habit earned this must-have Potentilla its epithet plus a coveted AGM. Winsome pinnate green leaves forge a close-knit deciduous foundation for the long-lasting lucent flowers, each hosting 5 rounded overlapping petals, which gradually deepen to canary-yellow at their bases. Undeterred by cold winters, poor soil and most insects, ‘Limelight’ adds a lively summer-long aspect to the rockery, cottage garden or the front of a mixed border.
