You might not transmute gold with Alchemilla, but foamy clusters of tiny star-like 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 welcome addition to any bouquet.
This irresistible dwarf Alchemilla sprouts gray-green serrated foliage and zesty citron-yellow flower clusters that don reddish hues once they’re spent. We plant it as a ground cover in the front of perennial borders or in small crannies of the rockery.
