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.

This charming dwarf Alchemilla sprouts gray- green serrated foliage and zesty citron-yellow flower clusters that don a reddish cast once they’re spent. We plant it primarily as a ground cover in small niches of the rockery.

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