Crisp, neat foliage and charming flowers that resemble anemones, in a broad color range, ensure that potentilla always has something going in the garden. Flowers bloom over a long period of time from late spring to autumn. When the leaves drop in fall, a reddish peeling bark is revealed. Good drainage is a must, and all potentillas prefer full sun.
With immense flower heads, hydrangeas flaunt an old-fashioned charm that is hard to resist. Unrivaled in the shrub world for beautiful flowers, they are easy to cultivate, tolerate almost any soil, and produce abundant blooms. Colors beguile with clear blue, vibrant pink, frosty white, lavender, and rose blossoms—sometimes all blooming on the same plant!
