Description

I love astrantias in a dappled shady spot in the garden, flowering long and hard all summer and I love them even more cut for a vase. They have an intriguing structure which scatters air through any arrangement like lacy clouds. These three, giving a good colour range, were top performers in our perennials for picking trial.

This collection contains 1 or 3 plants each of:
  • Astrantia major 'Margery Fish'
  • Astrantia major 'Red Joyce'
  • Astrantia major 'Washfield'

Care Tips

Keep moist until established. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
