Flowering Period

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • The common Alchemilla likes the sun or a semi-sunny spot, in loose, fertile soil. Dig a sufficiently large planting hole and thoroughly loosen the soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in compost and granulated cow manure. Place the root ball of the Alchemilla mollis at the correct depth in the planting hole, just below the surface. Fill the planting hole with soil, press down firmly and water immediately after planting.
    Combining Lady's Mantle
    Thanks to the fresh leaves, Alchemilla mollis is decorative both before and after flowering. Its beautiful fresh ornamental foliage forms clumps and covers the ground all summer. In the flower border, you could combine this magnificent lady's mantle (Alchemilla mollis) with betony (Stachys officinalis 'Rosea'), spiked speedwell (Veronica spicata) and cranesbill (Geranium endressii 'Wargrave Pink'). The result will be stunning!

  • Care
  • The common Alchemilla is an easy to grow perennial that requires very little maintenance. Make sure the soil around the roots does not dry out.   
    If you split the plant every three years, it will retain its shape and continue to flower well. Although this plant has a preference for a somewhat moist, permeable soil the common Alchemills also supports drought very well! Therefore making it a perfect garden plant.
    Lady's Mantle in winter
    A particularly vigorous, deciduous perennial. Prior to winter, the stems will die above ground.
    Early spring apply some fertiliser and remove all withered foliage. New shoots will soon start to appear above ground.
