Alchemilla Mollis


Common Name:¬†Lady’s Mantle

A charming little plant with frothy lime-green flowers in early summer and neatly pleated apple-green, fan-shaped leaves which persist all season. These can be refreshed if they look tired after a hot dry summer by cutting the plants back hard. Often overlooked by gardeners in search of something exciting, the unpretentious appearance of lady’s mantle makes it extremely useful all round the garden. Grow¬† as ground cover in shade or beneath roses.
