Often overlooked by gardeners in search of something exciting, the unpretentious Lady's Mantle is extremely useful for both its foliage and its flowers. With lovely pleated leaves that are soft grey-green with scalloped margins, the foliage has the additional virtue of looking especially beautiful after a rain, when it holds water droplets in the pleats of its surface like many pearls of liquid mercury.
The blossoms of Alchemilla mollis are just as extraordinary as the foliage; they consist of airy clouds of tiny, delicate flowers of a priceless chartreuse colour. This most valuable cooling green-yellow is a superb companion to almost all colours, especially violets, blues, whites and best of all, pinks. They also soften the harsher oranges and yellows. Lady’s mantle combine well with hardy geraniums (Geranium), bellflowers (Campanula) and sages (Salvia), as well as foliage plants like coral bells (Heuchera) and ferns.
Hardy to -15°C (5°F), the frost-resistant leaves grace the garden for most of the year, except for the very depths of winter. The blossoms of Lady's Mantle make outstanding cut flowers, both fresh and dried. Although there's nothing new about this venerable plant, it remains one of the most outstanding perennials, No garden should be without this beautiful, useful and charming plant.
