Alchemilla erythropoda

Dwarf Lady’s Mantle

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.031.030

A miniature Lady’s Mantle for edging borders or growing in the rock garden. Short sprays of chartreuse flowers appear over a dense mound of scalloped light-green leaves. Leaves catch and hold rain or dewdrops in a charming sort of way. About half the size of the Common Lady’s Mantle (Alchemilla mollis), and perhaps an even better choice for small gardens, containers and alpine troughs. An easy and long-lived plant, this tolerates a wide range of conditions. Divide in spring or early fall if desired.
