Alchemilla erythropoda

Alchemilla

Lady’s Mantle

You might not transmute gold with Alchemilla, but foamy clusters of tiny, starlike flowers in brilliant chartreuse will materialize above beautifully scalloped, slightly toothed foliage. A contrast of forms, Alchemilla was used to collect dewdrops in the medieval preparation of the Philosopher’s Stone. We find the way moisture collects and moves like mercury on the pale green leaves always magical. Whether fresh or dried, the flowers are a favored addition to any bouquet.

Alchemilla erythropoda full sun  partial shade

A charming dwarf form with gray-green serrated foliage and vibrant citron-yellow flower clusters that don a reddish cast once they are spent, we plant it primarily as a ground cover in small niches of the rockery.

Blooms April–August.

Size: 5" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 5.
