| Lady's Mantle is one of the most popular ornamental plants grown by herb gardeners. Their small, fuzzy heads of star-shaped, yellow-green flowers and graceful pleated leaves make them appealing backdrops for arrangements and displays. At 12 inches tall, they are a perfect height for borders or edgings. |

| Lady's mantle can be planted from seed, but takes two years to produce flowers. For faster blooms, purchase seedlings in the spring and set them in fertile, loamy soil spaced 12 inches apart. Plants can become invasive in the garden if left unchecked, so remove spent flowers before they have a chance to spill seed. |
