You may hear Potentilla called "Cinquefoil". These beloved plants are found on many continents and admired for their fine-textured leaves as a green symbol of loyalty and strength.

Perhaps that's because they are so durable. Marmalade Potentilla may look petite and tender...but they survive Arctic-style cold.

After their first season, in-ground plants become drought tolerant. They are an excellent choice for xeriscapes and Easy Garden designs.

Spread some joy with their easy charm. Like their namesake, they'll add a punch of tasty color to start your day.

How to Use First Editions® Marmalade® Potentilla in the Landscape

There are so many ways to decorate your daily life with these darling little plants. Create a happy place on your balcony with several pots filled with Marmalade.

Why not mix in a Mandarin Tango Potentilla, too? Mix and match our Potentilla cultivars for a custom "sweet and sour" look that coordinates beautifully!

They flower just as much as an annual plant, but these perennials come back year after year! They are so cold hardy, even container plants put forth new growth.

Just tuck them in a sheltered corner and let them go dormant outside for the winter. Water well in late fall, and as needed until the soil is frozen.

Potted containers make a very welcome gift, too! Show off your good taste on Mother's Day!

Trust us...she'll be thrilled with the flower power. Buy one or two for yourself, and place a matched pair of outdoor containers on either side of your front door.

Marmalade Potentilla is a great choice to improve the look of your front yard foundation planting. Expand existing plantings as needed to tuck a row of them on the sunny side of evergreen shrubs.

You can even use these cute shrubs in formal gardens. Replace the annual bedding plants in the center of Boxwood-lined rectangles with these easy-care modern cultivars.

Commercial property owner? Use their bold hues to draw the eye of passersby with these waterwise, low-maintenance shrubs.

Potentilla is a member of the Rose family, and mixes well with other perennials and flowering shrubs. Create a delightful mixed bed with coordinating Easy Elegance® All the Rage Rose and a contrasting, red foliaged selection like First Editions® Lambrusco™ Barberry.

Enjoy the process of planning out a new garden bed. Reclaim some of the lawn to develop a spectacular island bed for a pretty view from the deck.

We offer so many options to choose from. Bring the heat with red, orange and yellow tones; or go bold by pairing Marmalade with blue and purple blooms to really "pop" your planting.

#ProPlantTips for Care

This sturdy little shrub loves sunshine. Give them at least six hours of direct sunlight a day for the most plentiful flowering display.

Plant in well-drained soil. If you need to improve drainage, add additional soil in a raised bed.

They will require a consistent schedule of water to get their roots established. Afterwards, please water in extended high heat to protect your investment. Container grown plants need water regularly.

Mulch is a great idea to keep the soil cool and reduce surface evaporation. Apply a three-inch layer over the roots, then pull it back away from directly touching the stems.

Shape them with light pruning in early spring, but avoid cutting to ground level. Instead, rejuvenate them by cutting a few of the thickest, oldest stems out every three years; and leave younger stems in place to bloom their heads off.

Get a fresh serving of that intense shade of orange for many months each year. Order Marmalade Potentilla today!
