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. Reportedly no seed is produced so self-sowing should not be an issue. Clump will widen politely over time. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this 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. 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.
