Mauve pink florets explode above the white bracts tipped in burgundy. Plant Astrantia near a patio or walkway where you can marvel at the intricate detail of this unique flower. Each pincushion-like bloom is 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.
