One of the easiest and hardiest of herbaceous perennials, Potentilla 'Double Punch' will reward with masses of orange 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 even a hanging basket on your patio or balcony.
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.
