Limpet's Garden

Lady's Mantle (dwarf)

Genus: Alchemilla.

Species: Alchemilla erythropoda.

Bought at Kew 20/07 2009
Any well-drained soil, sun or light shade.
When flowering has finished, cut plants down to just above ground level.
PROPAGATION: Divide clumps in spring.

Retains rain/dew drops on the edge of it's foilage, a really beautiful plant to have all year round.

NOTE: Oct 2009 - haven't cut it down as it is still so little, tidied dead leaves and put it into greenhouse to overwinter.
