Product Details

Product Details

Combine two prolific ground covers for nonstop drama. Both Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis) and Geranium 'Rozanne' PP 12,175 perform without fail, and the combination of their frothy chartreuse flower clusters and purplish blue blooms is a knockout. Our Thrilling Contrast collection contains 3 plants of each, 6 plants total. Covers about 10 sq ft.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Beautiful Sprawl

Planted this collection in the September 2014 and was a little worried about its likely survival as the plants were so small. I needn't have fretted -- every spring since the plants have come up big and bold, flowering like mad for months, and attracting all sorts of bees and flying insects. I find the plants can get a bit sprawly as the summer goes on, but that's okay with me as I definitely prefer the messy cottage garden look.

Geranium photo

The geranium in the photograph looks very much like geranium magnificum not Rozanne.

Great ground cover for sun

It spread quickly. I will get more to fill in. I recommend.

Quality and price is right

I agree with the previous comment. I have been ordering from WFF for years due to the quality of the plants they ship. They usually ship bareroot or smaller plants, but within 3 years you have full grown plants and you never have to worry about the quality of the plants. I have, on occassion, had a plant die or bulb not come up. WFF has always either given me a replacement or refunded my money. If you want full grown plants, you need to visit your local nursery which will of course cost more money.

Happy repeat customer

Fabulous Pair under my KNOCKOUT ROSE!

[...] These plants are usually kept in cold storage and cut back before mailing, but have a large root system that will provide lasting pleasure. LADY'S MANTLE and CRANESBILL are an effortless pleasure in my garden in front of my KNOCKOUT ROSE! WFF should sell that TRIO, as I already wrote a review and it was even on an email they sent out, that KNOCKOUT ROSE outshines everything in my garden. These 2 plants under it give it an extra punch. Yes, if you want large established plants, you must go to your local nursery. But if you want the inspiration of first class gardeners, then I feel you must support WFF with your business!
