Potentilla 'Abbotswood' Hedge Plants Description

White Potentilla is a hardy and bushy deciduous shrub that benefits from a long flowering period from late spring throughout summer and into early autumn. The simple five-petalled flowers are a soft white and sit prettily above the foliage. Potentilla 'Abbotswood' is an excellent choice for informal, low hedging growing to around 75cm in height but easily maintained around 50cm.

Potentilla 'Abbotswood' tends to thrive in moist soil and although reasonably rich soil is preferred, they will tolerate poor soil as well. Being very durable plants, they will tolerate drought, flood, and extreme cold and will therefore thrive in seaside locations, making it a great hedging for exposed sites. White Potentilla do well in both sun and all but the densest areas of shade.

We have a collection of other flowering shrubs in our flowering hedging area. We also have Pink, Orange & Yellow flowering varieties of Potentilla, either as alternatives or to combine with.

You can view our full range of plants suited to similar heights in our low growing hedging plants section.

Potentilla 'Abbotswood' plants are available all year round.

Further Information
Further Information

Potentilla hedge plants love to be planted in a sunny spot where flowering will usually be prolific. However, the plant will grow and flower in all light conditions except deep shade. You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed on the page. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

White Potentilla are compact plants requiring very little in terms of care or maintenance other than a quick trim to keep the desired shape and height, growing to a maximum of 1.5m but easy to maintain as a low growing hedge under 1m.

It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots. Ideally, prune in the Autumn once flowering has occurred, cutting out all the old branches at ground level. Remove shoots that have flowered to within 1.5-2.5cm (¾-1in) of the previous year's growth.

To encourage optimal growth and flowering the following yearr, the plant benefits from an annual mulch or fertiliser trowelled into the soil.
