Astrantia major ‘Pink Pride’
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.

Touted as one of the longest flowering of all Astrantias, ‘Pink Pride’ will impress you with large pleasantly pink pin-cushion-like blooms. Green and rose-blushed bracts cradle the rococo flowers above a medium green foil of chiseled lusty green leaves and upright steadfast stems. Lovely in a swath along a partially shaded path, it makes a compelling companion for other extraordinary beauties such as Rodgersia ‘Braunlaub’ or Tricyrtis lasiocarpa

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