1 x Astrantia Snow Star 17cm Pot
Astrantias are superb perennials for growing under trees, on a stream bank or in a moist border. They prefer moist soils but will tolerate drier conditions as long as the plants are mulched with leafmould or another suitable moisture-retaining medium.
Astrantia major ‘Snow Star’ bears large, pure white flowers with green-tipped bracts, held clear of its lush green foliage.
For best results, grow Astrantia major ‘Snow Star’ in partial shade in moist but well-drained soil. Like other cottage garden astrantias, the flowers are good for cutting. After flowering, astrantias can be rejuvenated by cutting them back close to the ground – fresh new foliage and a late crop of flowers appear shortly afterwards. Astrantias don’t spread far but are well known for self-seeding.
Will reach a height of 0.7m and a spread of 0.5m after 2-5 years.
