These plants are wonderful in masses within a naturalistic setting offering unique textural variations to wild garden compositions. Ideal for water garden edges and nooks and crannies of moist waterfalls and pools. Makes a casual edging for walks and path and is also charming in red clay pots.

CARE
Care Thrives in lightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils. Shelter from harsh afternoon sun in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, maintain evenly moist soil. Remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Deadhead spent blooms promptly to minimize reseeding.
HISTORY
Lore Alchemilla was so named because its natural silvered leaf was thought to influence metals in the ancient art of alchemy.
