Lady's Mantle

Dependable and drought-tolerant, lady's mantle has frothy sprays of tiny yellow flowers, which have a long season and are good for cutting. Deadhead the plant after it flowers to prevent self-seeding. Lady's mantle does well in full or partial sun and moist soil, at the front of a border or in a gravel garden. It will grow to 24 inches tall and 30 inches wide.
