About the product
Shrubby cinquefoil is a compact perennial bushy flower with dainty foliage and buttercup-like flowers. This very hardy plant is native across all north temperate regions from Asia to North America. The yellow flowers appear in abundance in early summer and continue more sparsely into fall. They contrast nicely with the small dark green to gray-green leaves.
Flower colors - yellow, white, orange, pink.
This plant is adapted to average to poor sandy or gravelly soils and prefers full sun. Old stems should be removed to keep it looking neat and well kept.
Shrubby cinquefoil and its hybrids make fine plants for low hedges, foundation plantings, and mixed borders.
