Alchemilla erythropoda, Lady’s Mantel

Lady’s Mantel, Alchemilla erythropoda, fascinates us with gray-green fan like leaves that are serrated, looking as if they have been cut with pinking shears. Water beads up on leaves creating a shimmering show. Frothy spays of chartreuse flowers appear above the foliage in late spring and early summer. Excellent cut and dried flowers. Tolerant of poor soil.
