Potentilla hedge plants create a colourful deciduous shrub with a long flowering season. From late spring, through to early autumn, Potentilla shrubs are covered with 5 petalled, saucer-shaped flowers. Shrubby cinquefoil hedge plants are ideal for colourful, informal hedges and the early summer flowers are great for attracting bumblebees to your garden.
We stock four different types of Potentilla hedging plants:
Potentilla fruticosa 'Tangerine' – Orange flowers
Potentilla fruticosa 'Abbotswood' – White flowers
Potentilla fruticosa 'Pink Beauty' – Pink flowers
Potentilla fruticosa 'Goldfinger' – Yellow flowers
Potentilla hedges are tolerant of drought, flood and extreme cold. Potentilla can be planted in full sun to partial shade in exposed or sheltered sites. The four Potentilla varieties that we stock have similar planting and maintenance requirements. Simply select which potentilla flower colour you prefer to make your order.
A great species for adding a vibrant splash of colour to your garden, Shrubby cinquefoil is ideal for garden borders and informal hedging.

Potentilla shrubs have an average growth rate and can be expected to achieve 20-40cm per year. Although Potentilla hedging can reach 1.5m in height Shrubby cinquefoil can be easily maintained at less than 1m.
Potentilla hedging can be pruned in autumn. To increase optimum flowering, remove any straggly shoots at the same time. Please view the Best4hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section.
