Alchemilla Mollis "Lady's Mantle"
Lady's Mantle is so cool, a little dew in the morning and this is what you get, "jewels". A must have for your perennial shade garden and has chartreuse flower sprays in June to use as a long lasting filler for your flower bouquets, gorgeous. It's so easy to grow, can take fairly dry soil. Self seeds but not invasive , it attracts butterflies and is deer resistant. About 15" tall and 24" wide and hardy to zone 3. This photo shows just the buds of the flowers to come. When mature the stems resemble the same size as baby's breath like you would find in a florist.
