Astrantia  Moulin Rouge

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.

Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge’ full sun  partial shade

Resembling an elaborate centerpiece, domed flower heads, backed in pale green and tipped in burgundy make a glittery appearance on stiff, maroon-black pointed bracts. This darkly colored base is unique and sets ‘Moulin Rouge’ apart from other Astrantia cultivars. Strong supple stems and glossy, deeply lobed greenery give way to the sumptuous pageant of large, long blooming inflorescences that cast their beguiling spell upon the garden. (pp#16549)

Blooms June – August.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered three Kniphofias and a Salvia a little over a week ago, and received them today. E-mail response to my web order was prompt and provided all the information I needed. The Kniphofias are nice, healthy, generous divisions. The Salvia is…good value for the price and very healthy.”
