Alchemilla Mollis Ground Cover

Also known as the Ladys Mantle, Alchemilla is a very easy and charming clump forming perennial with fresh green leaves that catch the rain and subtle frothy chartreuse flowers

This particularly stunning perennial ground cover plant is clump forming and should be included in every garden. The name Alchemilla Mollis hails from the Arabic for magical one as hundreds of years ago alchemists believed the dewdrops of water collected in early morning contained healing and magical properties.

The scalloped green leaves of this wonderful small plant hold the rain drops making them look like a scattering of sparkling diamonds reflecting sunlight. All summer long the profusion of chartreuse yellow flower sprays add light and colour to the beds and borders. A firm favourite with garden designers partly as it is so easily grown and maintained this fantastic and hardy small plant sits beautifully with stronger coloured plants.

Alchemilla Mollis is so resilient it can cope with being planted in moist ground and when firmly established will cope with drought conditions. If flower heads and some of the foliage are cut back when fading and getting past their best then it will often produce a second flush of blooms.

Planting anywhere between 4- 12 plants per square metre is recommended depending on how much ground cover is required and how quickly one wants to have the end result if using as an edging then allow 2ft apart to give room for them to spread. They are a self seeding plant and if this may cause issues then removing the seedheads after flowering will minimise the spread. The plant itself will die back in winter and then regenerate again in springtime.

If you have any queries relating to this lovely potted ground cover plant then do not hesitate to give us a call and our team will be happy to help.
