Alchemilla mollis ‘Auslese’
at Digging Dog

Alchemilla mollis Auslese

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.

Profuse sprays of yellow-green frothy flowers adorn a mound of lush gray-green foliage, much larger than our other Alchemilla offerings. The leaves alone will enhance the foreground of any perennial border. ‘Auslese’ prefers cool moist soil, so we oblige by planting it in a woodland setting under a high canopy.

Size: 15"–18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered three Kniphofias and a Salvia a little over a week ago, and received them today. E-mail response to my web order was prompt and provided all the information I needed. The Kniphofias are nice, healthy, generous divisions. The Salvia is…good value for the price and very healthy.”
