Potentilla 'Mango Tango'
The range of colours and long flowering period of potentilla make it an excellent addition to the garden. They can start flowering as early as May and flower until November. They are very free flowering with single flowers in white, yellow, orange, pink and red shades.
There are tall varieties growing to 1.5m (5ft) whilst the majority are smaller growing to 60cm to 1m (2ft-3ft). They can be easily trimmed in autumn to reduce the size or help maintain the shape and can even be used as a low hedge.
They grow best in a sunny position in well drained to moist areas where they do not normally suffer from any pest or disease problems. Over the winter they will lose all of their leaves so they look really fresh the following year. They are fully hardy and should give a good show each year.
Potentillas look great as part of a mixed border with colours to complement any scheme.
