Alchemilla

Lady's Mantle

Alchemilla is a genus in the family Rosaceae.  They have ornamental foliage and although the flowers aren't very showy, the umbels of lime green flowers are great accents with other flower colours. Most species of the genus are native to northern Eurasia, but a few species are native to mountains in Africa and N-America. Three species are native to Iceland.
