Product information "Shrubby Cinquefoil 'Red Ace'"

The shrubby cinquefoil 'Red Ace' has red flowers, as the name implies. As with all shrubby cinquefoils, the flowering period is relatively long, from early summer to autumn, during which time the flowers are regularly visited by butterflies and other insects.
This ornamental shrub grows up to 60 cm tall and wide and is well-branched. The best choice is a sunny or partially shaded location; this variety is very tolerant to heat. With regard to the soil, this ornamental shrub is uncomplicated, normal garden soil is completely sufficient.

Potentilla fruticosa 'Red Ace' is also uncomplicated with regard to the pruning; in the winter, a slight pruning can be done to remove the faded flowers, so there is a neat impression. There are two possibilities for rejuvenation: on the one hand, the plants can be cut every 15 years to 15 cm. If you do not like such radical intervention, you can also remove the oldest shoots every year.
Due to its growth characteristics, this variety is well suited as alongside paths or borders of beds, where they can take over sites which were formerly planted with box, which are now often replanted due to the box tree moth; 3-5 plants per metre are recommended. This plant can also be used for area plantings or in containers. Plants per square meter: 3 pieces.
