Smoky burgundy-red flowers with white centers sizzle above the foliage on wiry stems. Commonly called Hattie’s Pincushion plant – pincushion is a perfect description of the flower heads.
Astrantia Star of Fire is prized for fresh or dried floral arrangements. Picking flowers results in even more blooms. For added interest, bracts remain attractive even after the flowers fade. Masterwort have been cultivated in Britain since the 16th century.
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.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Astrantia are happiest in a moist soil that drains well and would not be happy in a hot dry site. Remove spent flowers to prevent self-seeding. 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.
