Gold Drop Potentilla (aka, Buttercup Shrub)
The vibrant yellow blossoms of Gold Drop stand out to create a bright and colorful beauty in any garden or landscape. This shrub keeps on giving too as it continues to bloom throughout the summer and even into fall. Its fresh green foliage combines for an attractive look, and since it is deciduous, it turns a reddish copper in the fall. It is easy to care for and loves full sun. It can grow to about 3' tall and 3' wide, making it very versatile; it can be used in landscaping, gardens, containers and urban environments. Hardy to -40° F when protected from windchill, it is best to prune back toward the end of winter once extreme cold is over.
