Astrantia major ‘Roma’
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.

Evoking antique lace, pin cushionesque rosy red flowers are cozied within a decorative silver-hued rosette of pointy bracts. Slim branching stems plus handsome loosely arranged deep green foliage compose the durable coddle-free clump. A stylish contender for bright shady areas, ‘Roma’s artful blooms embellish mixed plantings under trees, along waters’ edge or in a border.

Blooms June–August

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