Orange Whisper Potentilla

Potentilla fruticosa ‘Orange Whisper’

Shrub: Potentilla

Height: 2-3′ Width: 2-3′
Sun: Full to Part Sun Zone: 2

Light orange, single blooms from summer through fall on this shrub that has a dense, rounded growth habit. Soft green, small, finely-textured foliage. Orange bloom colour fades to yellow in full sun and summer heat: will retain colour better in light to part shade. Great border plant or used in mass plantings. Tough, adaptable plant that is drought and chinook tolerant and deer resistant. Tolerant of a wide variety of soil conditions but should be kept moist until established: during drought will benefit from extra watering. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or an all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Blooms on new wood: annual pruning helps keep the shrub looking tidy and encourages new growth. Cut back one-third of the plant in late winter/early spring before new growth emerges or in fall when plant is dormant.

Available in select potted sizes.
