An excellent dwarf shrub that will provide brilliant summer interest with masses of bright white blooms that cover the fine green foliage, long after many plants have stopped flowering. A versatile plant for use as an accent or along walkways, in borders, low hedges, and foundation plantings. Deciduous.

Design IdeasUse as a fast-growing shrub for hot, dry places in the garden. Grow in the perennial border at middle to rear location. Small enough for edging or an informal hedge. Particularly lovely for adding late-summer color to moonlight or all-white gardens. An ideal foundation plant for under low picture windows in front yards. Potentilla is a most resilient plant for adding zest to drought-resistant gardens or for that cheerful rangy quality so loved in country or cottage gardens.
