Description

Alchemilla mollis Thriller (Lady’s Mantle)  al-kah-MILL-ah

Alchemilla mollis, the most widely grown of its genus, is available in an improved form that is neater and more upright than the species. A. mollis, or Lady’s Mantle, is part of a genus of about 30 plant species, mostly natives of the mountains of Europe, Asia and North America. The leaves are kidney shaped and flowers are frothy clusters of greenish yellow that appear in early summer. The long-lasting blooms are a soft, sensuous shade that blends remarkably well with a range of colors. Lovely with hardy Geraniums, Japanese Iris and Nepetas and any of our summer-blooming Azaleas. It also looks sensational massed on its own, creating an effect that can be sunny or demure depending on the light and surroundings. Alchemilla mollis generally prefers partial shade, but will grow happily in full sun in the North provided the soil remains evenly moist.
