A divide from a friends plant survived in a south exposure and moderate (25" annual) water condition for 3 years. After transplanting and dividing to a part-full shade condition on the north, again with moderate water, but less evapotranspiration, it is promising to fill in and thrive. Soils here in Montana are nutrient poor and droughty with a short and extreme growing season, Zone 4, 3400' elev., 12" ave. annual precip.

Personally, I am delighted with its slow, steady growth rate and its hardiness; just needed to get it to a more favorable location. The silver lined leaves are splendid.

To look at this one you may think its Alchemilla alpina but there are a few differences when closely inspected.

A clump forming, perennial from the South West Alps.

Has rounded, blue green on top and densely silver haired beneath, deeply lobed (7-9) leaves, which here, persist right through winter but has on occasion disappeared until Spring. Bears cymes of tiny, greenish yellow flowers.

Flowers June-October.

Likes a moist, well drained, humus rich soil in sun or partial shade. I find it performs much better in shade.
