PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth ,
This lovely astrantia produces masses of the usual pincushion blooms, which are pink with green tinges. But it really comes into its own in early spring, when the young foliage has strong white and green variegation. The white changes to cream and then yellow as the season progresses, and eventually the leaves turn completely green, by which time the plant should be flowering. Although generally preferring some shade, these plants are tolerant of sun if kept well watered. Makes a very good cut flower which lasts well and also can usually be successfully dried for winter arrangements.

Available as plants only, which are sometimes delivered bare-rooted, depending on season.
