GENERAL DESCRIPTION

These Are Bare Root Perennial Plants (Dormant Roots) And Not Flimsy Plug Plants.

The Main Picture Is A Stock Photo Only And Shows How The Plants Will Look When Fully Mature. A Bare Root Perennial Is Sent (Dormant Root)

This Is Perhaps The Darkest Red Astrantia There Is. The Flowers Are Carried On Near-Black Stems, With Deeply Cut Mid-Green Leaves That Are Tinged Around The Edges With Maroon When Young. Branched Clusters Of Stunning, Intensely Coloured Ruby-Red Flowers With Pincushion-Like Centres And A Flash Of Pure White At The Base Of Each Petal Are Produced In Abundance From July To August.

This Is A Cottage Garden Favourite And Makes A Great Choice For Planting At A Woodland Edge In Dappled Shape, Growing Under The Canopies Of Trees Or Planting En Masse In The Moist Ground Around Natural Ponds And Streams. They Will Tolerate Drier Soils As Long As The Plants Are Mulched.

“Astrantia Major Claret” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence.

As Astrantia Deter Slugs, They Can Also Be Combined With Large-Leaved Plants Such As Hostas To Act As An Organic Method Of Controlling Slug Damage. A Great Choice For Contemporary-Style Plantings.

After Flowering “Astrantia Major Claret” Can Be Rejuvenated By Cutting Them Back Close To The Ground, Fresh New Foliage And A Late Crop Of Flowers Start Appearing Shortly After. Plants Do Not Spread Far, But Are Well-Known For Self Seeding
