Description

An elegant “Ladies Mantle”, not as big and rampant as the “English Ladies Mantle” – Alchemilla Mollis, and much better suited to Australian garden conditions. However it gives that same lovely, frothy, foamy lime look. Delightful scalloped foliage that collects dew in pearls on pleated edges, and grows as a neat, compact clump. A foam of lime green, fine frothy flowers erupts over summer.  A plant of myth and legend that has accumulated many folk tales and medicinal uses.

– Width: 40cm approx.
– Position: Woodland, Dappled Light, Will tolerate Full Sun if kept moist.
