Astrantia major ‘Hadspen Blood’
at Digging Dog

Astrantia

Masterwort

According to Smith’s Exotic Botany of 1805, “The more refined admirers of Nature” rate Astrantia among their favorite blossoms. The flowers bloom like tiny enchanting fireworks: a star burst of bracts surround the spray of small flowers and splashy groups of buds shoot out from branched stems like the finale on the Fourth of July.

If a natural look is what you’re after, plant Masterworts near a shady patio or path where you can enjoy their detail. This is an ideal flower for arrangements, fresh or dried.

Esteemed for the glorious borders she created at Hadspen House, Nori Pope introduced this sought-after richly hued beauty. ‘Hadspen Blood’ is considered one of the darkest red cultivars, flaunting intricately detailed deep carmine floral mounds that shine like rubies over large lustrous palmate leaves. Stage near Persicaria ‘Red Dragon’ and savor the lavish union.

Blooms mid-June–September.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
