Alchemilla erythropoda (Dwarf Lady's Mantle)

Dwarf Lady's Mantle


Tough and long-lived, award-winner Alchemilla erythropoda (Dwarf Lady's Mantle) is a low-growing perennial forming a dense mound of rounded, softly hairy, bluish-green leaves adorned with sharply toothed lobes. The leaves retain the moisture beads after the rain. In late spring to mid-summer, sprays of chartreuse flowers are on display, taking on striking reddish tones as they age. Perfect as a small scale groundcover, under shrubs and trees, or as an edging plant. Ideal for the rock garden, this charming and easy to grow Lady's Mantle also provides a long season of interest at the front of the border.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 5-6 in. tall (12-15 cm) and 2 ft. wide (60 cm). This plant is prone to self-seeding.
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade in average, moist, well-drained soils.
  • Pest and disease free.
  • Once the flowers and foliage become untidy from late summer onwards, shear off and new foliage will appear
  • Propagate by seed in pots in a cold frame in spring or by division in spring or autumn
  • Native to the Balkans.
