Hi Walltoall, thanks for that! Unfortunately I sold the 2 specimens I had this morning, do you by any chance know if it grows well from seed? I still have a good sized plant growing in the garden.

Hi S+S
The usual way of propogation for the herbaceous perennial cinquefoil is by splitting clumps (about every three years). I don't know how to grow it from seed but it has to be possible. It's likes a well-draining soil and full sun. Otherwise it's not too particular.

The shrubs would propogate from cuttings, i suppose.

Thanks again! I had to move one plant that was growing over a path last autumn, so I split that, but it didn't divide well, despite being planted a few years. other types of herbaceous potentillas seem to divide quite easily by comparison. I'm afraid to dig up my only other plant, so I will have a go at propagating it from seed instead.
