Wonderfully easy to care for, this brightly coloured Potentilla megalantha - has larger than usual flowers for this genus: bright yellow saucers blooms with orange stamens. The deciduous foliage is beautifully veined and deeply cut, against which the flowers shine out, turning yellow in autumn. Perfect for the edge of a sunny border, a container or courtyard garden. 


Originating in Asia, this remarkable plant is indomitable and seems to take on every challenge since it is hardy, rabbit and deer proof, drought tolerant and long-lived for a small perennial.


A mass of flowers from May to July.

  • Well drained soil
  • South, east, west facing
  • Full sun, partial shade

This is the perfect choice if you want to plant it and then forget about it. Once established it is very drought tolerant and only needs cutting back after flowering to retain the rounded shape.
