Alchemilla mollis

Attractive old-fashioned perennial with leaves which collect droplets of dew which glisten in the sun. Clusters of yellow flowers from mid summer to autumn. Leaves are edible and can be eaten raw or cooked but are somewhat dry and astringent. The plant is more known for its medicinal uses such as stopping bleeding wounds and treatment of menstrual pain & irregularities. The pressed juice of the leaves can also be used to treat skin. Easy to grow in partial shade or sun, and supposedly tolerant of dry shade but additional watering may be required in drought.  Very attractive ground cover underplanting for trees.  Height to 50cm.
