Dwarf variety of lady's mantle with gray-green foliage and a reddish cast to the spent flower clusters. It will be interesting to see if I can tell a difference between this one and the A. bulgarica growing elsewhere in the garden.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Gladys Hutson||Jan 28, 2013||I live in North Carolina, which has recently been upgraded to zone 8. I have tried to grow Lady's Mantle a couple of times,(in shade) but I lost them both. Any advise? I really like this plant. |
Online sources don't quite agree on the warmest zone in which this species can be grown successfully (some say 7, others 9 - so you're right in the middle). All I know is that, unlike A. mollis, which is tough as nails, this species disappeared after a year or two in our garden.
