One of the most striking and popular cottage garden perennials. Clusters of tiny pinkish white flowers surrounded by a rosette of rich crimson petal-like bracteoles. Astrantia are a beautiful and extremely photogenic plant, flowering June to August they are a must have addition to a summer bouquet. Besides being an excellent cut flower and very popular, (we recommend you plant more than you need in a garden for this reason) Astrantia are a useful addition to a bed or border. They are happiest in dappled shade, prefer moist humus-rich soil. Height 60cm. Supplied as first grade loose roots.
