Masterwort

Astrantia major 'Star of Beauty' PPAF

Clumps of attractive foliage support purple and white pincushion flowers.

Masterwort is an exceptionally good cut flower and also attractive in the garden. This selection produces umbels of pincushion-shaped white flowers with magenta-purple tips, 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. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
