Petals often absent. Carpels 1 to 3, included within calyx-tube.

This tribe furnishes few ornamental species. The elegant plaited foliage of the Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla) entitles it to a place in the mixed border; and some of the Burnets (San-guisorba) have pretty pinnate foliage and dense spicate white, pink, or red flowers.
