Astrantia major ‘Lars’
at Digging Dog
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.
Astrantia major ‘Lars’
Celebrating bright and
cheerful colors, crowns of maroon
bracts deliver gorgeous cherry red floral mounds with
lighter pink centers. ‘Lars’s blooms loll high above
broad deep green lobed leaves on slender stems. This
energetic Danish cultivar looks a bit like an overly exuberant
Italian Flat Parsley and makes an unparalleled
up-front cottage-style filler that is easy to care for.
Size: 2' 0"–2-1/4' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

As Summer draws to a close....
September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.
Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link
