You expect a lot from the Happy Face® series of potentilla: hardiness, non-stop blooms, extra-large flowers, and essentially effortless care. Happy Face® Orange does all of that and more, and in an enticing bright orange color that stays cheery and vivid all through summer. After years of trialing and comparison, we’re confident this is the best orange potentilla we have seen.

Why grow Happy Face Orange potentilla:
– True orange color stays bright and vivid, even in hot weather

– Durable native shrub

– Exceptionally deer resistant


Light: Full sun (6+hrs/day), part sun (4-6 hrs/day)

Soil: Any well-drained soil will do

Water: Average water needs; drought tolerant once established

Fertilizing: One application of a granular fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs in early spring is sufficient.

Pruning: Regular pruning is not required, but plants do benefit from a hard trim to rejuvenate them every 3-5 years
