Lady’s mantle is an easy going perennial, it will grow in full sun to part shade and often tolerate full shade. Velvet mounds of light-olive coloured leaves grow low making it an excellent choice for a boarder or try planting it in pots. Snip the blooms and use them in a centre piece for an early summer barbecue.
