Alchemilla ellenbeckii
Common Name: Lady's Mantle Family: Rosaceae (The Rose Family)

Alchemilla ellenbeckii
Zoom In Photo:

This small, prostrate ground-covering lady's mantle is native to east Africa. Its considerable hardiness suggests that is from the high elevation areas of this region. A. ellenbeckii has been a great favourite at the nursery for the last few years. The leaves are tiny, 5-lobed, kidney-shaped and pale green. The flowers are the classic electric green and offer a subtle display.
