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.
Let this low growing, wonderfully textured plant creep its way around the shaded stepping stones of your woodland garden. Let the wine red stems and miniature, sometimes silver-edged, deeply lobed and scalloped green foliage surprise you under Helleborus, Astrantia or Tricyrtis.
