Plant Finder: about the Alchemilla genus

Common names

Lady's mantle


Alchemilla genus (Lady's mantle). There are about 300 species of herbaceous perennials in this genus. The perennials will bear sprays of tiny, greenish-yellow flowers with conspicuous outer calyces, in the summer. The spreading stems will often root as they grow. They will form clumps of palmate or rounded, lobed grey-green leaves that are often covered in fine hairs.


They are fully hardy and can be grown in all but boggy soils, with sun or partial shade.
