Hello yers its a seedling from the perennial Alchamilla mollis also known as ladys mantle, lift at the back end and plant in your favoured position.

Its a perennial and forms a clump and small yellow flowers are born on long stems aprox12/18 inch, looks good at the front of the border and this perennial does well in shade and full sun will do well potted up in a nice container, once flowers fade to brown then cut down to avoid it self seeding all over the place, on days when there is very fine rain and on damp dewy mornings you will notice tiny droplets of rain which shine silver and look like droplets of pearls, so beautifull and well worth keeping.

Julien, what a perfect description! I love the raindrops on the leaves. Mark, if you have a flower arranger in the house the dainty yellow flower sprays are perfect. I never remember to cut off the dead flower heads and they have indeed seeded all over the place.
