RHS Award of Garden Merit

Hardy throughout the UK


Alchemilla mollis is the most frequently-seen alchemilla, and for good reason. It is a charming plant with a frothy haze of lime-green flowers in late-spring and summer. These are accompanied by neatly scalloped apple-green, fan-shaped leaves, which last all season long. Garden designers regularly recommend this plant, more commonly known as Lady's Mantle, partly as it is so easily grown and maintained.

Sadly, amateur gardeners often overlook it, in the belief that they need to search of something innovative or exciting; actually, they are missing out on a delightful, subtle, unpretentious plant which is extremely useful all around the garden. No garden should be without it!

Alchemilla mollis sits beautifully with stronger coloured plants. Grow it as ground cover in full sun or shade; it goes well beneath roses. If allowed to self-seed into gravel or cracks between paving, the resulting seedlings are very drought-tolerant. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

  • Plant your Alchemilla between spring (ideally after frosts have finished) and autumn; once planted and established, this plant is very hardy
  • Plant in borders or patio containers, in full sun or part shade
  • Set plants 30-45cm / 12-18" apart
  • Water-in after planting and keep hydrated while in growth
  • Cut back the faded flower heads and foliage in August, and the plant will often produce a second flush of flowers
  • Feed plants with a general fertiliser in early spring, followed by a light mulch of rich leaf- mould or well-rotted compost
  • Alchemilla can self-seed freely; if you don’t want this, remove the seedheads once the flowers fade
