One thing is for sure, Bella Sol™ Potentilla will keep your interest! Never flat, never static, never boring ... like Sophia Loren in Suddenly Last Summer.
Even the well-appointed, dark green foliage is beautiful. Finely dissect, airy, and feathery...it makes a wonderful counterpoint to the boldly colored, single blooms. Life is easy with this easy-breezy member of the Rose family. It looks so sweet, it's hard to remember just how cold-hardy they really are. Bella Sol Potentilla is a dream to grow for busy gardeners or beginners, even if this is your first "grown-up" shrub.
Add Bella Sol™ Potentilla in all your sun-soaked spots for an effortlessly coordinated designer style. Ideal for full sun borders, edging and facer shrubs throughout your garden beds and borders! Rugged enough for Rock Gardens, but citrusy and colorful enough to add to the party around the pool, the glowing orange and yellow blooms light up the firepit and summer seating areas in the sun!
Try Bella Sol™ as a perfect "Thriller" in hardy containers and might turn your ho-hum modern balcony into a sun-drenched Italian villa! Add several pots in a grouping, elevating them at different heights to amplify their impact. Use terra-cotta style, lightweight pots to set the stage.
Mix and match with any extended bloom shrub or perennial from our extensive online catalog to create a lavish presentation. Pair Bella Sol™ Potentilla with our collection of Sunsparkler Sedum, airy Russian Sage, or rustic Coneflowers for an exciting look that requires ten minutes of work each year. Rework your foundation planting and showcase their illuminating la bella vita!
Waterwise Potentillas become a staple in xeriscapes and easy garden designs. Everyone has one of those spots in the garden that is hot and dry, and nothing seems to do very well. That is where Potentilla comes into play. Potentilla becomes the workhorse of your landscape. Great for xeric-scaping and fire-wise landscapes alike!
Work this petite, well-branched shrub into the front of mixed garden beds or Cutting Gardens and provide essential pollen and nectar sources for Pollinators. Use the blooms and a spray or two of foliage on your nightstand for a good morning and do not worry you're depriving your bees and butterflies of any meals!
Provide this sun-loving shrub with at least six hours of sunshine a day. They'll perform best in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly after a rainfall. Once their roots are established in your soil, they'll even become drought-tolerant and waterwise. Ensure your container has plenty of drainage holes if they'll be kept in containers. A touch of fertilizer and a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch around the plant's roots will give them insulation and support.
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 the late winter or very early spring. Rejuvenate them by removing the thickest, oldest stems out to the ground every few years.
