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.
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.
Alchemilla glaucescens (P-0010)
