Lady's Mantle
(Alchemilla mollis 'Thriller')

Lady's Mantle has a place in every garden. After a rain, the attractive foliage holds droplets of water which glisten in the sun. Billowing heads of star-shaped, 1/8" yellow-green flowers are prized as a cut and dried flower. Lady's Mantle looks particularly wonderful as a border in front of other tall perennials, particularly blue and purple flowered plants.
