Plant details

Astrantias are superb perennials for growing under trees, on a stream bank or in a moist border. They prefer moist soils but will tolerate drier conditions as long as the plants are mulched. Astrantia major 'Burgundy Manor' is a beautiful variety with ruby-red pincushion flowers with a persistent bract, shading from pink through to greenish-white. It's ideal for growing in containers and makes an excellent cut flower.

For best results grow Astrantia major 'Burgundy Manor' in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. After flowering, astrantias can be rejuvenated by cutting them back close to the ground – fresh new foliage and a late crop of flowers are produced soon after. Astrantias don't spread far but they do self seed.
