Also sold as 'Margery Fish', it was selected by the famous plantswoman at her East Lambrook garden in Somerset. It has striking, large flowers with green-tipped, pointed white bracts, held well clear of its mound of glossy green leaves. It combines well with a rich, dark red astrantias such as 'Hadspen Blood' and 'Ruby Wedding'. When growing it in full sun, add plenty of leaf mould (humus) to keep the soil moist, add a layer of mulch around the plant, and water young plants well in dry weather. Like other cottage garden astrantias, the flowers are good for cutting. The RHS has awarded it the Award of Garden Merit.
