Watering Notes Water young plants weekly. Potentilla is drought tolerant needing only minimal watering once rooted in. Soil should be well-drained to prevent overwatering.
Fertilize Notes Use a slow release fertilizer at planting. Then feed a couple times with 10-10-10 in the first season. Established plants can be fertilized once every two years with a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10. Over fertilizing can push foliage at the expense
Prune Notes Remove crossing branches after blooms are finished. To control height, in the third year prune out the three oldest stems to the ground. Continue yearly.
