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)

Quite Distinctive From The Forms Of Astrantia Major Comes This Wonderful Species “Astrantia Maxima Rosea”. The Large Triangular Bracts Are Held Pretty Much Flat And Are A Rich Sugary-Pink. The True Flowers From A Large Dense Pin-Cushion Centre. The Leaves Are Fresher Green Than Most And Split Into Three Lobes. Different In Having A Spreading Habit. Happy In Sun Or Part Shade With Some Drainage. The Flowers Are Produced Over A Very Extended Season From Spring Into Summer And Dry Very Well.

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 Maxima Rosea” 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. Attractive To Bees And Butterflies.

After Flowering “Astrantia Maxima Rosea” 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.
