Work this petite, well-branched shrub into the front of mixed garden beds or Cutting Gardens. Use the blooms and a spray or two of foliage on your nightstand for a good morning.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Provide this sun-loving shrub at least six hours of sunshine a day. They'll perform best in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rainfall.

Ensure your container has plenty of drainage holes, if they'll be kept in containers. Please don't use saucers underneath outdoor containers.

For the first season in the ground, give consistent water. Container plants need a regular schedule of water on a consistent basis.

Add a three-inch layer of mulch to reduce surface evaporation. It will slowly improve your soil over time; but be sure it doesn't directly touch the stems.

If you need to shape them, do very light pruning in early spring. Rejuvenate them by removing thickest, oldest stems out to the ground every few years.

For color, pizzazz and low-maintenance style...order Bella Sol Potentilla today! Maximize the appeal of your personal paradise with their winsome appearance.
