Lady’s Mantle; Alchemilla Mollis:
All ground covering plants, spread easily. So if you plant Alchemilla Mollis in beautifully lush soil, it will spread really really quickly. It is easy to remove and if you want it to spread more slowly, then cut all the flower stalks off before it seeds.
‘Good for ground cover’ plants are great for harder conditions, they grow more slowly and where other plants struggle to get going. Having said all that, Alchemilla is really pretty, the leaves are a lovely shape, the flowers are a lime green colour and barring it’s propensity to spread, it doesn’t require much attention at all.
To see how we use Alchemilla in our designs.
