McKay’s White Cinquefoil grows quickly into a mounding deciduous shrub hardly more than 2 feet tall and wide. It has dark green leaves like tiny hands, divided into 5 slender leaflets, covered with delicate silver hairs. The 1-inch blooms are bowls of pure white with golden centers, carried all along the branches from May into September. This shrub is perfect for low-maintenance gardening, in garden beds, on slopes, among rocks and in planter boxes. It grows well even in urban settings and at the beach, thriving will almost no attention at all

  • Covered in pure-white blooms from early summer through fall
  • A compact mound ideal for edging and low hedges
  • Perfect for hot, drier parts of your garden
  • Incredibly resistant to both cold and heat
  • Very low-maintenance, but always attractive

Plant McKay’s White Cinquefoil in full sun for the best results, although it will tolerate a little shade. It grows even in warmer parts of zone 2, all the way into zone 7, taking both winter cold and summer heat. It grows readily in all well-drained soils, even poor soils and urban conditions, as well as tolerating salt-spray. Deer, pests and diseases normally leave it alone, as long as the soil isn’t wet and you can grow it without any attention at all. Trim as needed, and remove a few branches from older plants to regenerate them.
