For abundant flowering, cinquefoil needs sunny areas, but light shading will not harm it. Optimal planting period: since the plant has a closed root system, it can be planted in spring, late summer, and autumn. However, when planted in autumn, the shrubby cinquefoil may not have time to prepare for winter, and shoots that have not yet lignified - freeze. The plant is winter hardy. It develops well and only shows itself in its glory on fertile, moderately moist soils. Cinquefoil does not tolerate heavy, clay soils. Potentilla needs annual spring pruning to maintain the crown in a decorative form. In April-May, shorten the shoots by a third, and cut out all damaged, old and dried shoots. Every few years, cutting the plant to 5-10 cm from the ground level is necessary. Potentilla is an excellent shrub for creating flower borders, hedges, mixed flower beds, edging flower beds, and taller shrubs. It can be used as a tapeworm on the lawn. Looks great in a rocky garden. The variety is suitable for growing in containers.
