Potentilla – Monarchs Velvet 2 litres
We grow 4 varieties of Potentilla: Tonguei, Monarch’s Velvet, Ron Mcbeath and Miss Willmott.
This gorgeous little “toughy” is a member of the cinquefoil/strawberry family.
Under-plant with any of this family, they provide ground cover and develop quickly.
Monarchs Velvet is smaller than Miss Willmott, and a little slower to reach its flowering height of 30 inches growing into a very neat clump. With palmately or pinnately divided leaves and solitary saucer-shaped, 5-petalled flowers appearing over a long period from late spring through the summer. The flowers are fabulous being very dark blood red, this can make a striking red “collar” around trees, they are hardy and reliable.
