Found some years ago in my garden, it has taken sometime to multiply this lovely plant enough to offer it for sale. We are proud to offer this variegated version of the well-known ‘Lady’s mantle’ for the first time. A worthy edition, the round, scallop-edged, soft green leaves are liberally splashed with cream. Sometimes this radiates from the middle of the leaf in broad triangles, at other times, the soft cream colour is splashed and speckled in lines. Emerging from the centre the leaves create a neat mound that is less vigorous than the normal green version. A froth of tiny, lime-green flowers cover the mound for much of the spring and summer. Unlike many variegated plants, the variegation on the leaves is incredibly stable. It is also not too vigorous. A worthy addition to any garden.

Care advice

A hardy perennial, this dies back in autumn and grows again in spring. Hardy to -10 degrees perhaps more. Deadhead the flowers when they finish to avoid not variegated Alchemilla seedlings.
