Description

Commonly known as "lady's mantle," Alchemilla 'Thriller' sports loose clusters of yellow-chartreuse flowers that rise above the foliage in late spring to early summer. This low-mounding perennial is easily recognized by its scalloped, gently ruffled leaves that balance on its long stems. Water droplets catch in the fine hairs of its stems and leaves, making the entire plant sparkle in the early morning sunlight.

Alchemilla 'Thriller' lady's mantle prefers moist, fertile soil that is well-draining. It can tolerate clay soil and coastal conditions, and is not usually appealing to deer and rabbits. It will freely self-sow. Alchemilla 'Thriller' would be an excellent addition to woodland borders and low-maintenance shade gardens.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
