Astrantia major ‘White Giant’
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.

Slightly reminiscent of a refined Queen Ann’s Lace, large greenish white domed flowers reside atop a stiff spidery ruff of green-tinged white bracts, while riding wiry stems and palmately cut, dark green toothed leaves. Coveted by butterflies, floral designers and horticulturists, ‘White Giant’ emphasizes long lasting blooms with mesmerizing detail and a lovely enduring presence that can be sprinkled amid Sesleria ‘Greenlee’, Geranium ‘Havana Blues’ and Aster ‘October Skies’ for natural panache.

Blooms mid-June–September.

Size: 2' 0"–2-1/4' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
