Potentilla nepalensis 'Ron McBeath'
Named after the former curator of the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens. Grows bushy and flowers continuously with bright pink flowers scattered on thin, branching twigs. This garden plant is very suitable for growing among other plants. These plants have the ability to adapt to the situation. Currently, the Nepalese cinquefoil "Ron McBeath" is a good example of this. Other plants that can do this well are, for example, various geranium species and Persicaria. All plants with a wild perennial character, with long, intergrown flower stems. This creates the most beautiful effects.
What is Nepal cinquefoil suitable for?
If you want to have a lush border, the Potentilla is the right choice. Keeping the cinquefoil is also possible for those who do not have time to maintain their garden. Because once an area is overgrown, weeds no longer have a chance. The use of a rake is still a taboo in a cottage garden because there is simply no space to rake between the plants. Potentilla nepalensis McBeath is a carpet-forming, ground-covering perennial with pretty, dark red-centred, crimson-pink flowers.
