Lady's Mantle

USDA Hardiness Zone 2-7

Beautiful light green foliage that just begs to be touched. It gathers droplets of dew in the morning which creates a lovely effect, and it was once believed to have magical and medicinal qualities! Velvety, scalloped foliage with a chartreuse bloom in the spring. Great as a border plant, in a mass as a groundcover, along a path or in a container.
