Description

Potentilla are commonly known as Cinquefoil, and the variety 'Gibson's Scarlet' has stunning single red scarlet flowers with a dark centre during summer. It is clump forming with silvery-green palmate strawberry-like leaves with a toothed margin.

A superb perennial for exposed conditions providing it is planted in a sunny location. This perennial can be divided during the autumn. Any reasonably good soil is preferred providing it is not too moist. 'Gibson's Scarlet' usually dies back in the winter - if not cut remaining stems to the ground the following spring.
