Description

One of the richest coloured astrantias around, with stand-out claret red blooms, dark green stems and leaves tinged with red as they emerge.

As with all astrantias, this will self-seed and may hybridise if you have any other astrantias planted nearby – so pull up any seedlings with green leaves to maximise the chance of new plants emerging true to form.

Care Tips

Keep moist until established. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
