Rediscover an Old Cottage Garden Favourite
Whimsical, colourful and abundant—
astrantia is a staple of cottage gardens past
and present. Brightly hued blooms last for
four weeks or even longer—reliably filling out
a summer garden. Its unique, fantastical shape
features a pincushion of florets encircled
by petal-like bracts. Astrantia is related to
the carrot, and you can see the resemblance
when you examine its serrated, deeply
divided foliage. In colouration, our Astrantia
Collection ranges from white to purple, and
includes the darkest red astrantia there is.
Wherever you plant astrantias, expect to
be delighted by their beauty and resilience.
They prefer moist soil, and are even wet-site
tolerant. Astrantias are gorgeous in borders
and make charming cut flowers, fresh or
dried. To top it all off, butterflies adore them!
Beauty that Lasts
These astrantia boast an extra-long bloom period, from early to late summer
(except Venice Astrantia which is even longer). But their beauty doesn't end there.
The bracts remain attractive long after blooms are done. Astrantia flowers dry well
too, and make darling and enduring arrangements.
This Collection includes 1 each of the following varieties:
Rich burgundy-purple florets and
reddish-purple bracts. Height: 55-60 cm.
Venice has an exceptionally long
bloom period, from late spring to late
