Potentilla fruticosa 'Everest'
Also known as Mount Everest, this Potentilla is an upright and compact shrub that shows off bright white flowers as early as spring, and throughout the summer in most growing conditions. It is part of the rose family and easy to grow. You can use them on slopes, for hedgerows, mass planting, coastal, and urban growing. Drought tolerant once established, Everest is both deer and rabbit resistant.
Butterflies and bees both love this delightful plant. It can grow up to 3' tall x 5' wide. Hardy to -30°F when protected from windchill. This shrub loves full sun and well-draining soil. We recommend pruning back to 1" of previous year's growth in early spring, after the last winter frost.
