Mango Tango Potentilla
Potentilla are a dense, round shrub that is extremely low maintenance. It is hardy, adaptable and does well in full sun. The bright flowers (which come in several variations) attract butterflies but not deer. When I was working in this flower bed I noticed deer tracks all around, but the only thing they ate were some weeds! Now that I've seen first hand how well this little cute shrub does, I'll be planting more in my yard, perhaps some pink or red flowered ones!
