Alchemilla mollis

lady's mantle

Native to Eastern Carpathians, Caucasus

Quite adaptable, growing in full sun to part shade, but can tolerate full shade. Morning dew and rain will bead up on the foliage, which is very attractive.  Chartreuse flowers appear in June, which may be cut or dried.  Deer and rabbit resistant.
