Alchemilla conjuncta

Tim Rich is correct, even though A. conjuncta is not currently shown as the likely ID. (Hopefully this will change, though the 'expert' system doesn't seem to be working as it should.)

The leaves are deeply lobed, but the lobes do not form separate leaflets as they do in A. alpina.

A. conjucta is frequently grown in gardens and readily escapes. A. alpina is rarely grown .
