Potentilla herbaceous plants


Potentilla herbaceous plantsPotentilla are handsome herbaceous plants with Strawberry-like foliage. They will grow in any common soil, and may be increased by dividing the roots or by seeds treated like other hardy perennials.

The shrubby kinds are well adapted for the fronts of shrubberies, and are propagated by cuttings taken in autumn and planted in a sheltered situation.

Potentilla flower at midsummer and their height is about 1.5 feet.
