PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Potentilla recta sulphurea 'Pallida' AGM
Cinquefoil
Highly recommended!
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Late Spring - Autumn
Height 18in/45cm
Light preference Sun (tolerates part-shade)
Soil preference Any reasonable, well-drained soil
Sowing time/depth , Barely cover
This pale-yellow variety of cinquefoil is a wildflower that makes a lovely addition to the cottage garden but is relatively unknown and rarely to be found for sale. It flowers for many months, from Spring and right through to the first frosts. Will gently self-seed. The colour can vary a little in density, but the yellow is never garish!
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow thinly on the surface of good quality, moist compost, covering with a bare sprinkling of compost or fine vermiculite. Provide a temperature of about 20C/68F. Germination is usually 7-14 days, but can be a little longer. Grow plants on in individual pots, planting out when large enough.
