Lady's Mantle

Alchemilla mollis 'Thriller'

Mounds of fuzzy scalloped leaves in soft grey-green produce sprays of tiny yellow flowers.

Extremely popular for the beautiful foliage texture this lends to the garden. Plants form a mound of rounded, velvety soft olive-green leaves, which catch and hold water drops, then sparkle in the sun. Sprays of chartreuse flowers are a nice filler for cut arrangements. Excellent for edging. Plants should be sheared back after blooming to rejuvenate the leaves and generally tidy the clumps up for the remainder of the growing season. An easy-care perennial, growing well in sun or shade. May be divided in spring or early fall. Often self seeds around the garden.
