Potentilla in a pot........don't think it would like that.
Red Ace can be fussy but I grew it in a fairly moist spot and it did well. Tired of it though......the best Potentillas are yellow or white as far as I'm comcerned.
I grow Elizabeth in a very poor, dry corner and it is great.....it has greyish green leaves and for this reason assumed it would cope better in arid comditions. However I grow Everest, a good white, in an area where soil is better amd another yellow in a dry spot.
So. I think although potentillas like it dry and poor and they are adaptable they dont like their roots cooped up. Always best in the ground ...for me
