Potentilla fruticosa ‘Apricot Whisper’ full sun  partial shade

Delicate parchment-like 5-petaled flowers awash in hushed apricot pink hues and dainty thickset dark green leaves set this compact easily grown shrub apart. Promoting fine textured appeal, an attractive flood of small narrowly divided foliage garbs the versatile twiggy visage that makes an excellent hardy choice for low hedges, foundations or mixed borders. ‘Apricot Whisper’ can handle poor, sandy or gravel-strewn soil, but dislikes hot humid areas, and appreciates a midsummer trimming.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.

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.
