Astrantia major Buckland

<i>Astrantia major</i> ‘Buckland’

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.

For its robust stature and endless supply of light-hued, good-sized blooms, ‘Buckland’ earns its keep in our garden. Each pearl green ruff houses an airy, dusky pink mound, brimming with intrigue and soothing shades. This Astrantia major and Astrantia maxima hybrid boasts nearly a six-month long floral show that tempts bees, butterflies and gardeners, while crowning stout branched stems and tightset 5-lobed, verdant toothed leaves.

Blooms mid-June – October.

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

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
