Item added to cart!

Lady's Mantle is a clumping herbaceous perennial  that forms a long-stemmed basal mound.  The light green circular foliage is scalloped and has 9-11 lobes with soft downy hairs.  Small spreading clusters of star-shaped chartreuse flowers bloom in summer and can experience another lighter bloom if deadheaded.  Grows best with afternoon shade in the South and well-drained soils.  Lady's Mantle tends to keep beads of moisture after a rain, creating additional ornamental value.
