Plant Astrantia near a patio or walkway where you can marvel at the intricate detail of this unique flower. Stunning detail on each pincushion-like bloom. Silver papery bracts surround showy rose-red florets. Long blooming. Prized for fresh or dried floral arrangements. Picking flowers results in even more blooms.
For added interest, bracts will remain attractive after flowers fade. Astrantia have been cultivated in Britain since the 16th century.
Flowerheads remain attractive for a long time. Astrantia is an old cottage-garden favorite, but works well in contemporary-style gardens, too. Perfectly suited towards the front of a mostly sunny site or at a woodland edge. Excellent filler plant and cut flower. Reportedly no seed is produced so self-sowing should not be an issue. Clump will widen politely over time.
Astrantia are happiest in a moist soil that drains well and would not be happy in a hot dry site. Can be cut back to new growth at base of plant if foliage declines in hot summers. Leave new basal growth for winter. Reportedly no seed is produced so self-sowing should not be an issue. Clump will widen politely over time. Divide in spring or fall every 4-5 years.
