Alchemilla mollis or Lady’s Mantle is a clump forming perennial with fuzzy, soft gray-green leaves. The leaves have a tendency to retain moisture droplets after a rain storm. In early summer, tiny yellow flowers appear atop stems rising above the foliage. The spent flowers should be removed promptly to prevent the plants from self seeding. Lady’s Mantle is easily grown in full sun or partial shade and prefers an average garden soil that is well drained.

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
