    I can't place this cute ground cover, and the sign was gone! Help, please.

    Thanks!

    It looks like Alchemilla, but not quite like the one I know, more like what I'm seeing for Alchemilla vulgaris.

    Alchemilla alpina (or related species - it's a huge genus after all).

    Thanks, Axel. I noticed that the number of leaflets was surprisingly regular at seven in that photo, and I see that Wikipedia mentions "about seven lanceolate leaflets" for Alchemilla alpina.

    Agree with Alchemilla alpina - silver edges along leaves.
