Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris)
(Ladies Mantel, Ladys Mantle)
Perennial, mounding ground cover bearing fluffy yellow flowers. Native to Europe, temperate Asia and N. America. The richly scalloped, deep green leaves collect and magnify drops of dew. These dewdrops, and also the more substantive medicine composed of the dried leaves, are a well-respected female tonic useful in treating emotional and physical ailments. This is thoroughly discussed in my book “Making Plant Medicine.” In the garden, Lady’s Mantle makes an excellent bedding plant, the perfect size and height for edging paths.
