Buy Potentilla × tonguei cinquefoil: Great summer-flowering ground cover

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spreading stems are clothed with rich green divided foliage forming handsome groundcover, which is topped with red-eyed apricot flowers throughout summer. An easy-going ground-covering plant that will happily colonise a sunny spot at the front of the border.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in autumn or spring. In spring apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plants.
