Alchemilla glabra   Smooth Lady's-mantle C DD N

Alchemilla glabra Alchemilla glabra leaf

This plant has an interesting distribution being quite common in Wales, very common in Northern England and Scotland but almost totally absent from England south of Derbyshire. It is most easily found in hilly areas where it likes to grow alongside streams and in damp places. The bright green, almost totally hairless leaves on a fairly large plant for an Alchemilla are very striking in the sunshine. This is one of the Alchemilla aggregate which is fairly easily identified.
