Who else likes potentillia?
My new favorite shrub, just may be potentillia (cinquefoil). I have six little yellow ones and they are wonderful! They're very winter hardy, deer don't eat them, they bloom all summer, they have cute little flowers and they seem very happy in my clay soil, being watered overhead by the sprinkler :)
This spring, I'm thinking of trying some pink and maybe some white ones, too. Along with my butterfly bushes (which seem to be pretty hardy, so far) and lilacs, they are my best 'deer defense' shrubs! LOL
I'm thinking of putting the potentillia on either side of some of my arches. I think the pink ones, and the white ones too, would be beautiful with the sweet peas...and the yellow ones will look amazing with some blue morning glories!
Does anyone else like potentillia? Here are some pictures (not mine) but they show how pretty, this little shrub is.
