Astrantia major ‘Venice’

Red Masterwort

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.088.370

Masterwort is an exceptionally good cut flower and also attractive in the garden. This selection produces umbels of pincushion-shaped deep wine-red flowers, arranged like spokes on a wheel. Cut fresh or dry for winter display. Midsized in habit, great for the mid border or in containers. Dead-head regularly to promote more buds and to discourage self seeding all over. Performs best when given a rich, evenly moist soil. USPP#18420: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
