Astrantia Superstar (syn 'White Giant') - The large, greenish-white flowerheads look like pincushions surrounded by a spidery ruff of green-tinted, white bracts. These are produced en masse above the lobed, dark green leaves from early summer to autumn adding bobbles of colour to the border. Astrantias have become the 'darlings of the designers' in recent years as they lend themselves to most styles of planting, and mix happily with most plants.

Astrantia major ‘Roma’ – happy in heavy, wet soil. One gardener planted them in the worst soil in his garden … "so heavy I can barely dig a hole to plant. They don’t like to dry out but I’ve grouped them all in an area that only gets a few hours of midday sun… they’re in their own “water zone”.

Astrantia 'Hadspen Blood' This Masterwort prefers part shade and moist soil that does not dry out. Masterwort blooms continuously throughout the summer and fall, wafting a sweet scent. Like Queen Anne’s lace, each masterwort blossom is an umbel of tiny flowers, framed by a collar of papery bracts.

Astrantia major rosea is a herbaceous perennial that flowers in midsummer but produces a later flush if deadheaded. After flowering plants can be rejuvenated by cutting them back close to the ground - fresh new foliage and a late crop of flowers start appearing shortly after. Plants do not spread far but are well-known for self seeding. Grows 18-24" tall in sun to part shade. Zones 5-9
