The Many Shades of Potentilla fruticosa

Potentilla is another deer-resistant plant to add to your arsenal.  These small to medium sized shrubs have been popular for years, and for good reason.  Their compact habit and gently arching branches work well in mixed shrub borders, foundation beds and mass plantings.  Planted in full sun, they are super-low maintenance, tolerate many types of soil and boast flowers from June to frost.

There are more and more cultivars to chose from, but below are some of the most common.
