Potentilla atrosanguinea
at Digging Dog

Potentilla

Cinquefoil

Said to be useful in medicine and magic at least since the time of Hippocrates, the sun-loving Cinquefoil likes well drained soil and partial shade in hotter climates, obliges both cold and drought, and can be nestled into the rockery or atop a garden wall alongside Campanulas or Stachys.

Potentilla atrosanguinea full sun

Hailing from the lower slopes of the Himalayas, this strong perennial is named for its vibrant saucer-shaped blood red flowers borne on widely branching leafy stems. The neatly toothed long-petioled silver-gray foliage sports silky hairs on the upper surface and a white tomentose below. Well-suited for a front or midborder location, Potentilla atrosanguinea’s good-looking bearing performs best in cool summer areas and tolerates dry conditions once established.

Blooms June–August

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 12"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
