Potentilla nepalensis ‘Ron Mcbeath’
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 nepalensis ‘Ron Mcbeath’ full sun

While the somewhat sprawling species traipses throughout Nepal's Himalayan Mountains, this vivacious nonshrubby cultivar makes a compact well-groomed perennial for your garden. A handsome low mound of hairy coarse-toothed strawberry-like foliage presents 1 in. wide rosy carmine flowers, each defined by a dark crimson eye and 5 heart-shaped lipstick-pretty petals on wiry branched stems. Venerating a former plant curator at the Royal Botanic Garden in Scotland, 'Ron McBeath' makes a flashy long blooming mate for Knautia 'Mars Midget' and Geranium sanguineum 'Album'.

Blooms May–August.

Size: 8"–12" high x 15"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
