Astrantias are superb perennials for under trees, on a stream bank or in a moist border. They tolerate drier soils as long as the plants are mulched. Astrantia major 'Roma' is a beautiful variety with ruby-red pincushion flowers on maroon stems. After flowering. plants can be rejuvenated by cutting them back close to the ground - fresh new foliage and a late crop of flowers start appearing shortly after. Astrantias don't spread far but are well known for self-seeding.
