Potentilla


Potentilla Collection
The potentillas (Potentilla sp.) are a group of very low growing perennials to mid sized yellow flower shrubs which are very hardy and bloom nearly continuously throughout the summer.  Consequently they have a tendency to be over used.  Recently several new hybrids have been released with larger flowers (1-2 inches across) and new colors, white, gold, red.  We have 42 specimens in our collection.
