Can you I.D. this?

This is growing in Bainbridge, WA, and a friend asked if I could i.d. it. Is this a weed or a plant to keep? Thanks.

Alchemilla mollis, Lady's mantle.

Can be weedy, if left to go to seed. But it is also used in beautiful plantings.
Saw a whole bed of it at Columbia winery in Woodinville last week, it was beautiful. It would likely be removed and replanted with something else later in the summer as commercial plantings typically go.

Thank you so much for the quick response! I have passed in on so they can decide if they want to leave it or remove it from their garden (new home).
