Alchemilla 'Mollis Thriller'

Plant Type: Perennials

Absolutely enchanting after the morning dew, the fuzzy leaves of A. mollis catch the tiny water droplets which glimmer like tiny crystals. The foliage is a soft gray-green and nearly round with deep lobes, giving them a scalloped look. From late spring to early summer, masses of finely textured, star-shaped, yellow-green flowers are held in small clusters above the foliage. They work well as a filler in cut flower bouquets or can be dried for fall and winter arrangements. A. mollis is a clump-forming perennial that spreads slowly by creeping rhizomes. It can be used as a ground cover, edging, or filler plant in the border. If it’s happy where it’s planted, this plant will reseed.
