Product Description

One of the easiest and hardiest of herbaceous perennials, Potentilla Fruticosa 'Red'issima' will reward with masses of red saucer-shaped flowers all summer long, contrasting wonderfully with rich green, bushy foliage.

A versatile and attractive element in many garden locations, its bushy, low-growing habit makes it perfect for the front of beds and borders, as well as rock and gravel gardens. It also is a great choice for banks and slopes and a colourful choice for informal hedging. It makes an eye-catching display when planted in a pot or container for your patio or decking.

This deciduous, low-maintenance shrub grows to about 90cm height and spread, with good pest and disease resistance. Very hardy, when fully established it will tolerate drought and very cold temperatures.

Place in full sun or partial shade, and ideally in moist but well-drained soil. Potentillas are happy in most soil conditions.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready to plant out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Prefers a little shade during the heat of the day to keep blooming for longer and prevent the flower colour from fading.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish more quickly.

Care Guide

  • Can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dry.
  • Select an appropriate spot for your plant, making sure that you give it enough space to grow to its full size.
  • Choose a semi-shaded or sunny position that has some shade during the day. Will tolerate a wide range of conditions but ideally prefers a moist, well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary. Dig a hole slightly wider than the nursery pot, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil. Add some good-quality fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone. Plant to the same depth as the nursery pot and backfill with soil, firming around the planting area with your heel. Keep well-watered until established, but after a few weeks in the ground, your plant will not need much watering. If planted in a pot or container, water enough so that the soil does not dry out about once a week through spring and summer, or more if the weather is hot. Very hardy and low maintenance, but for best results, feed in late autumn/early winter, then mulch to preserve moisture through the winter. Plants can be tidied by trimming back in autumn when they have finished flowering, or as necessary in the summer to maintain shape.
