Potentilla x tonguei


By Andrewr

Potentilla x tonguei (Potentilla x tonguei)

I find this a frustrating plant. Instead of clumping up, it throws out stems with the orange flowers at the ends. Has anyone found an effective way of using it in the garden?

Andrew, I have just purchased 3 of these and am planning to plant them in the front gravel garden. Did you have any joy with yours?

No Shirley it didn't last long, but I think the position was not well enough drained for its liking. I would be interested to know how it gets on in your gravel garden.

Thanks for replying Andrew ... the front garden is South facing ... I shall add lots of grit before planting them!
