Buy Potentilla thurberi 'Monarch's Velvet' cinquefoil: Most attractive, heart shaped rich raspberry red petals

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

    Ravishing, rich raspberry red flowers with deep velvet red centres from June to August and hairy, strawberry-like leaves. This red cinquefoil is a fabulous, long flowering plant for a sunny herbaceous or cottage style border. One of the most attractive varieties currently available, for maximum success chose a site that doesn't get waterlogged in winter.

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

Beautiful flowers and good filler


I loved the pretty little flowers that just kept going regardless of weather




Flowers smaller than expected


I bought this to fill in a gap with something that didn't need constant care. This is what it did. The flowers are a lot smaller than expected and therefore do not add that noticeable flash of colour. Other than that moderately pleased.




Strong growth in alkaline soil with good levels of sunshine


Flowers somewhat overwhelmed by large leaves.
