Astrantia General Information

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. Does not seed; clump will widen politely over time.

Astrantia Plant Care

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. Divide in spring or fall every 4-5 years.
