Astrantia major 'Alba' is a charming perennial with branched heads of neat pincushion flowers, surrounded by a ruff of greenish white bracts in summer. It performs best in a moist soil and makes good ground cover if planted as a group. Self-sown seedlings often appear around the parent plant - transplant them to another part of the garden, or give to friends. Cut off the old flower stems and foliage when the plant starts to die back in late autumn. Astrantia major 'Alba' produces white blooms from June through to October.
