fruticosa 'Goldstar' decid shr • ht to 2' • zones 2-7

bush cinquefoil; shrubby cinquefoil


new, native, ground cover, hedge, dry - wet, sun - part shade
n Hemisphere, circumpolar

This dense, compact, rounded shrub is an excellent choice for small spaces. The small, fine textured leaves are a dark blue-green color, turning to coppery tones in the fall. Nearly free from diseases and pests, bush cinquefoil is adaptable and durable, withstanding drought and flooding as well as poor, dry, clay, rocky, or slightly alkaline soil, and extreme cold. They require little maintenance once established, yet produce masses of flowers over a period of months. Shrub cinquefoil also serves as a butterfly nectar source and as a host for dorcus copper butterfly larvae. 'Gold Star' bears clusters of large, showy, lemon yellow flowers continuously from June until frost.

'Pink Beauty' bears clusters of semi-double, pink flowers reminiscent of single-flowered roses. The flowers retain pink coloration well in all kinds of environments, including hot, humid summers and a long blooming season from June until frost. Well suited for use in rock gardens, as a low hedge or ground cover, or just about anywhere in the garden.

native, rock garden, part shade - sun
eastern and central North America; Greenland

An elegant native of rocky places, especially mountains. Leaves are small, glossy, leathery, evergreen. Clusters of small white flowers appear in spring. Best in moist, well-drained soil, but is fairly adaptable (as long as drainage is good). Does well in our acidic soil, but may prefer slightly alkaline conditions. Will spread slowly, under favorable conditions, to form a solid mat.
