Potentilla atrosanguinea var. argyrophylla 'Orange Starlight'
This is an absolute cutie. A cheeky little plant with lovely bicolored flowers and silky foliage.
It's a close relative of the popular, blood-red flowering, Potentilla atrosanguinea but this one has golden yellow flowers with a darker, orange centre.
Lovely silvery leaves covered in fine hairs make this a very attractive option for rockeries, tubs and the front of borders year round.
Super tough, undemanding yet very showy, this is a wonderful plant that you have to squeeze in somewhere. They thrive in well drained, quite poor soil in sun.
Just shear back after flowering to rejuvenate the foliage.
