Potentilla atrosanguinea Sundermannii

Potentilla atrosanguinea Sundermannii
I've never been a huge fan of the border Potentillas which can look a bit coarse but P.atrosanguinea and its kind are saved by their intensely silver-backed strawberry foliage which looks good even without the flowers. P.atrosanguinea is best known in its dark red forms and I normally would not rate a yellow version but Sundermannii, with its deep golden yellow and red centres, really stands out.
A splendid and easy front-of-the-border plant for any half decent soil in sun or semi shade.
