Product information "Shrubby Cinquefoil 'Dakota Sunspot'"

Shrubby cinquefoil 'Dakota Sunspot' grows up to 70 cm high and wide and is also very compact. The graceful shoots are covered with golden yellow flowers from June to October; the amount is numerous in the summer and less dense during the autumn months. In contrast to the small leaves, the flowers are relatively large with a diameter up to 3 cm and they are popular with butterflies.
It should be planted in a sunny to partially shaded location using ordinary garden soil. This shrub is very tolerant to heat.

Potentilla fruticosa 'Dakota Sunspot' is also very maintenance-friendly; it can be cut a little in the winter to remove the old flowers and maintain a tidy impression. Likewise the plant can be cut to 15 cm, in order to obtain strong budding. This can be carried out approximately every 5 years. However, the plant can also be continuously rejuvenated by removing the oldest shoots every year.

What is known classically with box, that is, using it in borders or as a low hedge along paths (though not so much anymore due to the box tree moth), can also be used for shrubby cinquefoils and they also have a nice blooming effect. 3 plants per square meter are recommended, depending on how quickly a closed impression should be created. Area plantings or group plantings, e.g. under trees, are possible. This ornamental shrub is also attractive when planted in containers.
