Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
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.
