Potentilla fruticosa 'Goldfinger' - Goldfinger Potentilla

'Goldfinger' is the larger of the two yellow-gold flowering Potentillas in our local market, reaching 3-4' in height and spread. You'll lots of flowers on this shrub beginning in summer and lasting through the majority of the growing season. Foliage consists of dense clusters of 1/8" x " leaves that are kelly green in color. If you look closely you may even see some of the very fine hairs on the tops of the leaves. This plant is usually chosen for the blooms it provides through the summer, because in fall the leaves simply turn brown and fall. Several years after planting there may come a time when this shrub will begin to look a little shabby; a trimming the shrub to within 3-6 inches of the ground in late fall (or very early spring) will provide evenly distributed new growth the following spring.
