Alchemilla are charming perennials with frothy lime-green summer flowers and pleated, apple-green foliage.
Alchemilla sericata 'Gold Strike' has smaller leaves than Alchemilla mollis. It forms neat, compact mounds of grey-green leaves, topped with upright sprays of lime-green flowers in late spring and early summer.
Alchemilla sericata 'Gold Strike' is ideal for growing at the front of the border, lining a path or beneath alliums or roses. It makes great ground cover. Like all alchemillas, it self-seeds freely, into gravel or cracks between paving. If you want to avoid this, cut back the faded flowers promptly.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Cut back foliage hard in late summer to encourage a new flush of leaves and flowers.
