Bella Bellissima is a Potentilla that survives both the coldest and hottest weather. The compact form and giant pink blooms make for quite a nice choice for a sunny, sandy spot. Potentilla makes for  a great groundcover on a slope or planted in smaller groups in a sunny garden bed. With low maintenance and a long growing season, Bella Bellissima ™ is a winner.

Potentilla is deer and rabbit resistant. Any soil is fine for these shrubs, as long as it is well drained and has average fertility. The only thing Potentilla does not like is shade and too much water. Both will make it sulk and can cause root rot issues. Potentillas attract beneficial pollinators and butterflies.

Soil pH is not an issue for these hard workers. Anything from 5.0-8.0 pH will work. Clay or sandy soils or something in between is not  a problem. Potentilla will tolerate drought conditions easily after it is well established. Watering needs to be little and often during the first few years. 

Growing to 2-3 feet wide x 2-3 feet tall means that very little pruning needs to be done to keep this plant tidy. No deadheading is necessary to keep it blooming all summer long. A generous mulching near the base of the shrub will give it a little extra insulation during the winter months. Fertilization can be kept to a minimum of once a year. A slow release, well balanced fertilizer applied at the beginning of the spring.

Spacing is 2-3 feet, center on center, of the plants. These well behaved shrubs look best when planted in 3’s and 5’s, but do not make very good hedges. They could  also be added to containers to give year round interest near a front door or on a patio. When grown in a container, Potentilla will need regular watering and feeding with a weak liquid fertilizer a couple times in the summer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
