Ladies Mantle

“Ladies bathed before noon, after their three o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Related to the rose, Ladies Mantle is said to have magical healing properties. She grows close to the ground and surrounds herself with tiny, yellow, star like flowers. It is said that you can find both bravery and fortitude from within, when she is present. She reseeds herself freely and finds a way to flourish in the tiniest spot of soil. She sparkles after a good downpour and last forever in a cut bouquet.
