Potentilla Gold Drop cinquefoil is a low growing shrub that provides summer long color. Its single, rose like, buttercup yellow flowers bloom from early summer to frost on a mound of finely textured light green foliage. This makes the Gold Drop Potentilla flowering shrub a great addition to any landscape or flower border. Easy to plant and maintain, the Potentilla Gold Drop tolerates drought as well as occasional wetness but prefers well drained soils.
Potentilla Gold Drop plants are deciduous xeriscape shrubs that do best in full sun and will flower all summer if trimmed in late June or July along with fertilizer and water. The flowers are borne atop the tips of the new growth. Gold drop is good for the rock garden, border or as a flowering ground cover, foundation planting or specimen It is best to thin this plant in late winter by cutting back about one third of the stems near the ground (older stems only). Potentilla also serves as a butterfly nectar source and a host for butterfly larvae.
