Staghorn Cinquefoil

Potentilla x tonguei

June – September.



<i>Potentilla</i> x <i>tonguei</i>

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 x tonguei full sun  partial shade

Dramatically etched by deep red eyes, soft apricot-colored flowers roost above wide trailing clumps of lobed evergreen foliage. This long blooming charmer stays low to the ground as it scrambles between steps, spills over a border’s edge or cavorts with Helianthemum ‘St. Mary’s.

Size: 6" high x 12"–15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Potentilla x tonguei (P-1581)
