A beautiful English selection of a New Zealand native shrub. Fast growing evergray plant with cool cord-like stems coated in fine white and a great accent to the small silver leaves. Small white flowers in summer. Best in well draining soil and requires little water in full sun. To 6' tall and as wide in 3 years. Hardier to cold in poorer soils. Natural looking large border plant for slopes with Buplerum fruticosum and ornamental grasses, if you so desire.
Alchemilla erythropoda (dwarf Lady's Mantle) evergreen, forming neat, compact clumps of bluish-green leaves, which have notched edges and may take on a red flush when grown in full sun. The yellow-green flowers appear in small clusters from late spring and take on russet tones as they age. zone 3-9
