Product Information

Also known as masterwort or Hattie's Pincushion, Astrantias are a clump-forming, hardy perennial which are a favourite of many garden designers, ideal for shady, moist areas of the garden.

The Astrantia, 'Bavarica' is ideal in any cottage-garden style, or they can also be grown in more contemporary garden styles where their colour can be fully appreciated.

Its predominantly white pincushion-like flowers are tinged with pink and produced above dark green, lobed leaves. They tend to have longer bracts to the flowers than other varieties making them ideal as cut flowers and as a perfect plant for a pot.

Recommended by the RHS as a Plant for Pollinators, this striking variety will help you do your bit for the environment by encouraging wildlife into your garden.

Supplied as 1 x established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

Astrantia make attractive dried flowers, especially those with pronounced bracts. They need to be cut and dried just before the flowers actually come out.

Care Information

  • Best grown in moist, fertile, humus-rich soil, plants can be positioned in sun or partial shade and will also tolerate drier conditions.
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Astrantias do not like to dry out. Incorporate plenty of organic matter when planting and water well in dry weather especially newly established plants.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
    The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
    Water in well to settle the soil and prevent drying out.
