The scalloped, mid green foliage forms a lovely, rambling ground cover. The leaves have tiny hairs that capture dew and raindrops forming beads that glitter like diamonds in the sun.
From late spring to autumn, the handsome foliage of Lady's Mantle is complimented by loose cymes of lime green flowers.
Grow Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis) as a ground cover, in a pot, beneath shrubs or towards the front of your beds. Lady's Mantle grows well in part shade and should be protected from hot summer sun. Plant in moist, humus rich, well drained soil for best results.
Prune the spent foliage of Ladies Mantle in autumn to keep plants tidy. Flowers will set seed but are not invasive, the plants will ramble gently. Protect young foliage from slugs and snails.
A good value plant, Lady's Mantle holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
