A plant you have to love
Look at how the sun magnifies the drops of dew on the finely serrated leaves of the Lady's mantle. It is just like a necklace of jewels in the sun. This is one plant you grow for the leaves. The flowers are large yellowy plumes that appear in late June, but many people don't like them and cut them off. This plant plums up quickly in the garden and is a reliable grower. I recommend it to all gardeners. It can be divided easily and will grow in sun or shade. This one is a foundation plant in the shady garden.
