Plant Species of the genus Potentilla

Information about this genus
Name: Potentilla
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: These plants prefer a fertile well-drained soil. Cultivars with orange, red or pink flowers tend to fade in very strong sunshine and should be given a position where they receive some shade in the hottest part of the day. Propagation is usually from seed in autumn or cuttings in summer.
Description: This is a large genus of some 500 species in the rose family. While most are herbaceous perennials, the shrubby species are exceptionally useful as small ornamentals, being very hardy, thriving in most soils, in sun and in partial shade. The flowers are like small single roses, and are produced over a long period, from spring throughout summer and in some species well into autumn.
