Happy Face Hearts™ Potentilla That Make Your Cheeks Hurt

  • Pink and White Apple-Blossom Blooms
  • Full Sun and Clay Soil Tolerant
  • Hardy, Easy Care Native
  • Great As Groundcover

Happy Face Hearts™ Potentilla (Potentilla fruticosa HAPPY FACE Hearts 'SMNPPS') is both tough and beautiful. All of the lovely potentilla varieties in the Happy Face™ series are.

They are bred to have super performing hardiness, maintaining their beauty all the way up into growing zone 2. They can take a winter of -50 degrees and bust out in the spring like it was a sweet winter's nap! They are known for non-stop blooms that start in late spring and go all summer. The blooms are not little wimpy things, either, but big and proud flowers that cover the plant.

Happy Face Hearts blooms look just like apple blossoms. They are pink with a creamy-white 'star' in the center that gives it an old-fashioned picot edge. They also maintain their pink color no matter how hot it gets and won't bleach out.

But, even though they look sweetly old-fashioned, this native potentilla gives a hardy, modern day performance. They prefer moist soil, but as they mature, they can adapt to dry soil very easily.

Use Happy Face Hearts in your mixed perennial borders or even as edging, since they only grow a couple feet tall and wide. They make a great tall groundcover and look amazing massed in big drifts in the landscape, mixing well with other pink or white flowers.

You will love these native plants. They will work hard for you, but not make you work hard! Buy some from us today.
