Potentillas are very easy to grow and are adaptable to a wide range of soils (even surviving in heavy clay) and sites though they prefer moist soil and full sun. They show good drought tolerance once established and have excellent winter hardiness.  They also attract butterflies and other beneficial insects in large numbers.
