Potentilla - Gold Drop
Drops of Sunshine All Summer
The Potentilla' Gold Drop', Potentilla fruticosa 'Gold Drop', also known as Buttercup Shrub or Shrubby Cinquefoil, displays attractive, yellow buttercup flowers all summer.
Potentilla is a superb flowering shrub for northern gardens. It is tough and adaptable to many conditions except, it does not like wet soils.
Gold Drop Potentilla is a deciduous shrub that does best in full sun and will flower all summer if trimmed in late June or July.
The flowers are borne atop the tips of the new growth.
It is best to thin this plant in late winter by cutting back about one third of the stems near the ground, on older stems only. It matures to 2'-3' with an equal spread.
Potentilla also serves as a butterfly nectar source and a host for butterfly larvae. It has an attractive green, copper fall color.
Gold Drop is not particular about soil types or soil pH levels!
