al-kem-ILL-ah MAWL-iss

This plant has lobed, densely hairy, chartreuse foliage that is crimped at the edges. Soft, frothy, yellow-green foliage hovers above the plant from early summer through autumn.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  The soft leaves form depressions which capture morning dew or rain.
Care:  Provide full sun to part shade and average moisture. Cut back hard after flowers brown to produce a second flush of growth and blooms.

Problems:  Slugs and snails may damage foliage
