Astrantia major ‘Hadspen Blood’

Red Masterwort

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.088.350

Masterwort is highly regarded by floral designers for the unique umbels of starry flowers, a bit like a refined Queen-Anne’s-Lace in effect, but not at all weedy in habit. This is an outstanding selection, perhaps the darkest red form that has yet been developed. Plants form a low mound of green leaves, with taller stems of flowers appearing over top in summer. An especially nice filler plant for any moist area in sun or part shade. Remove faded flower heads to prevent self seeding.
