Features of Lady's Mantle


Mound shaped plants with decorative scalloped velvety foliage. Sprays of chartreuse flowers held above the foliage. Particularly nice after a rain or heavy dew as water droplets are held on the leaves and glisten in the sun. Will reseed.


  • Prefers a moist soil in a lightly shaded location.
  • Dry soils affect foliage quality
  • Needs to be divided occasionally to keep the plants vigorous and avoid dead areas.
  • Removing spent flowers helps in late season appearance.
