Potentilla fruticosa 'Lovely Pink'


Potentilla fruticosa 'Lovely Pink' (Potentilla fruticosa)

I saw this shrub at Malvern - and resisted it. Then I saw it again at our little local Nursery...and didn't resist it! This is the only flower, so I think that's it until next year now.

They are great shrubs! I have a yellow one and 'Abbotswood' which is white. They flower on and on once they start. :-))

Wonderful purchase! I'm getting a few for next year. They do extraordinarily well here. Wonder if I can find other than yellow though.....:-)

i have never been a fan when i have seen them but when you see such beauties like this perhaps i need to re appraise them.

I've been drooling over the apricot coloured ones, Sbg. But - can I find another space?? LOL.

Gt - is it because of where you are? Can you get them by mail order?

Its where I am. They are a wild plant and easy access in yellow. Mail order works but it is only available in summer if the company offers ship to Alaska at all. Many fear us due to the uncertainty in their gaurantees. The nurseries even have trouble ordering.
