This little shrub loves sunshine, in fact if you can give it at least a 6-hour period a day it will prove a plentiful flowering display for your delight. When planting them always use well drained soil and if it needed further drainage add additional soil in a raised bed.
The Marmalade Potentilla requires a consistent watering schedule to establish the roots. If your area experiences extended heat then additional water will be required to keep it healthy. If it’s kept in a container, it will need water on a regular basis. Mulching is always a good idea to keep soil moist, cool and it will reduce surface evaporation.
Three inches of mulch over the roots is perfect but make sure it doesn’t touch the stems. Shaping with some light pruning in the early spring is encouraged. Just don’t cut them to the ground. Rejuvenate them by cutting some of the thickest oldest stems out about every 3 years and then leave younger stems in place so that can bloom to their hearts content!
