Alchemilla glaucescens

Alchemilla glaucescens

April–mid-August.

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 glaucescens full sun  partial shade

Trimmed with silver-haired teeth, shallow rounded lobes sculpt the soft-as-velvet, olive-green palmate foliage, while effervescent sprays of thirst quenching lemon-lime flowers linger above. Growing larger than Alchemilla ‘Auslese’, this Alchemilla delivers radiant appeal in dappled light amid blue flowering Brunnera.

Size: 10" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 5.
