An extremely hardy and low-maintenance shade perennial features dense clusters of chartreuse flowers above the foliage. Â Alchemilla, or Lady’s Mantle is a popluar ground cover for shade and works great on the boulevard, or where other plants can not grow. Â My favorite characteristic of this bestseller is how beads of water form on the leaves after a rain. Â The leaves dislike water so much they actually form a thin layer of oxygen between the foliage and the water. Â Alchemists considered this elevated water to be the purest form of water, hence its botanical name: Alchemilla.
