The genus name "Alchemilla" comes from Arabic Alkemelych (alchemy) meaning "little magical one". Alchemilla vulgaris has an affinity with the female reproductive system and many time-honored traditional uses as a woman's herb.
Ladies' Mantle is an attractive perennial herb enjoyed in flower gardens for its unusual chartreuse flowers, which are small and numerous, and its distinctive round, pleated foliage. Named after the Virgin Mary's cloak because of its scalloped leaves, Ladies' Mantle can grow to a height of 24 to 36 inches.
