Astrantia major Buckland

mid-June – October.

<i>Astrantia major</i> ‘Buckland’



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.

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