Lady's Mantle, Thriller Lady's Mantle

General Description

Old-fashioned and delicate, thriller lady's mantle is the ideal perennial for partial sun to shade. This compact and vigorous selection has scalloped sea-green leaves and effervescent plumes of chartreuse flowers that appear in early summer. Though able to tolerate short periods of drought, this plant does best when provided with evenly moist, rich, well drained soil. Contrast this subdued clumping perennial with purple or bronze heuchera and pink, white or yellow columbine.
