Alchemilla or Lady's Mantle is worth growing just to see the droplets of rain and dew collect on it's soft leaves. But the soft clouds of chartreuse flowers seal the deal. They bloom with our peonies providing the perfect contrast in color and texture at a most welcomed time.
Excellent perennial filler for cut flower growers.
