The Tangerine Potentilla, Fruticosa tangerine, is an excellent but rare wildlife shrub. The orange flowers last over many weeks like other cinqufoils, but the beauty and unique feature of this species is the prostrate habit. The dense foliage spreads horizontally across the ground slowly producing a thick mat.
They are virtually pest free. The Tangerine variety is wide spreading with layered branches. The flowers are bright yellow in full sun but become orange in cool weather or parital shade.. The shrub flowers from early spring to late fall and should be pruned back every 2 to 3 years which will rejuvinate the plant.
