HAPPY FACE HEARTS® Potentilla

Zone: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 1-2' Width/Spread: 1-2'

You expect a lot from the Happy Face® series of potentilla: hardiness, non-stop blooms, extra-large flowers, and essentially effortless care. Happy Face Hearts® has proven itself worthy of the line-up, and brings beautiful apple-blossom like flowers, pink with a white-yellow star in the center for an old-fashioned picotee look.

Light: Normally chosen for very intense locations, like blazing full sun. It does pretty well in partially sunny positions, it will just flower a little less robustly. It needs at least six hours of direct exposure to flower abundantly.

Soil: Super adaptable to any soil type, just needs to be well draining. Even does well in polluted areas or those that get a lot of salt in the wintertime.

Water: Quite drought tolerant after it’s established in its first year.

Fertilizing: Can be fertilized in the springtime when soil is workable, however this isn’t necessary. As a rugged North American native, it is accustomed to thriving with what nutrients are available.

Pruning: Its rounded habit looks more uniform with a yearly overall trim in the late winter or early spring. Maintains the best vigor and flowering with periodic rejuvenation pruning. This is the process of removing 1/3 of the thickest branches all the way back to the ground. You can get to the task every three to five years, depending on how dense the plant is.
