Description
The beautiful Potentillas (or Cinquefoils) are a great group of color makers for perennial borders. They're small bushy (only about 18" tall) members of the rose family, and if you look closely, you'll see the five-petaled blooms resemble a small wild rose. Even though these are herbaceous perennials, their growth habit is somewhat shrub-like, with semi-woody stems. This makes them tough plants that are loved by many gardeners. Also, romantics like the fact that the flower petals are perfect hearts.

        Comments about Potentilla Monarchs Velvet:

        Easy to plant. mixed peat and garden soil, and watered. Small white leaves (from mailing) turned green the next day. I have had the plant only a short time, but it is thriving and will have plenty of time to establish itself before winter. It is tiny and will not bloom for a year or two. root cuttings split in shipping so I have more than the 3 promised plants. As usual, very satisfied with American Meadows.

        As soon as your order is placed you will receive a confirmation email. You will receive a second email the day your order ships telling you how it has been sent. Some perennials are shipped as potted plants, some as perennial roots packed in peat.  The ‘Details’ tab describes how that item will ship. All perennials and spring-planted bulbs are packaged to withstand shipping and are fully-guaranteed. Please open upon receipt and follow the instructions included.

        Perennials and spring-planted bulbs are shipped at the proper planting time for your hardiness zone. Perennial and spring-planted bulb orders will arrive separately from seeds. If your order requires more than one shipment, there is no additional shipping charge. See our Shipping Information page for approximate ship dates and more detailed information.
