Potentilla is a type of shrub that blooms during the hot months of summer. However, these shrubs may become overgrown, and they will need to be pruned. When pruning potentilla, the best time to do this is from late winter through early spring so that they can be ready for blooming during the summer. It is best to wait until after the worst winter weather, including snowstorms and very cold temperatures, has passed to prune. When pruning, cut the stems halfway to the ground. Abotu half of the older stems can be removed or cut down to the ground.
