    Pretty, pale pink pincushion flowers suffused with green and with a white ruff appear from June to August above deeply lobed, dark green leaves. This astrantia has larger flowers than many cultivars. Although it is an old cottage-garden favourite, it works equally well in contemporary-style plantings. Use towards the front of a sunny, yet moist border, or at a woodland edge.

  • Garden care: Astrantias do not like to to dry out. Incorporate plenty of organic matter when planting and water well in dry weather especially newly established plants. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring and apply a generous 5-7 cm mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the plant. Divided specimens may take some time to establish since they don't like having their roots disturbed.
