Happy Face® Orange Potentilla is a commercial landscaper’s top go-to plant for attractiveness and durability. The pumpkin and apricot flowers are accompanied by attractive bluish-green elliptical foliage. With blossoms that rarely fade, this herbaceous perennial blooms throughout summer and fall. Also known as Potentilla fruticosa 'Minporoug01', you could not ask for a better landscape plant!

This ornamental is ideal for mixed borders, low hedges, foundation plantings, and containers. It is low maintenance, deer and rabbit resistant, and drought and salt tolerant, making it a landscaper’s dream. As a Northern American native, it will work hard to churn out those beautiful blooms that you and local pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, love.  

Happy Face® Orange Potentilla Care

While Happy Face® Orange Potentilla grows in full sun to partial shade, full sun will maximize flowering. The soil should be slightly acidic, moist, and well draining. Improve poorly draining soil with compost. Happy Face® requires one inch of water weekly. To support foliage growth and flowering, apply a balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10, or layer of compost during spring.

Typically, this low-maintenance, showy perennial doesn’t require heavy pruning. However, since it blooms on new wood, trim for shape or size during late winter or early spring and, every three to five years, cut back by a third to rejuvenate growth. Remove dead, diseased, damaged, and crossed stems to improve access to sunlight and aeration.

Happy Face® Orange Potentilla Spacing

Happy Face® is a compact bush, reaching maximum heights of only 18 to 30 inches and spreads of 2 to 3 feet. Space each shrub 2 to 3 feet apart. Plant it in cottage and pollinator gardens with companion plants, including butterfly bush, catmint, coreopsis, daisies, and verbena.

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.
