Alchemilla mollis. I really don’t think that name suits this plant. I like its other name, Lady’s Mantle.
I have used this plant in the garden beds for many years.
Granted, some of them I didn’t actually plant there.
They kind of just decided to grow there.
Reseeding can be a problem.
But it’s such a tidy little clump, beautiful leaves, especially with drops of rain or dew on them.
I have this whole patch along the path. It looks good in a mass like that.
And the frothy yellow blooms are good for bouquet fillers too.
When the blooms are finished, I cut them all off, and the plant looks good for the rest of the season.
Not everyone likes this old-fashioned plant, but I think there’s lots to appreciate.
How can you resist such delicate little flowers?
