Astrantia 'Hadspen Blood' This Masterwort prefers part shade and moist soil that does not dry out. Masterwort blooms continuously throughout the summer and fall, wafting a sweet scent. Like Queen Anne’s lace, each masterwort blossom is an umbel of tiny flowers, framed by a collar of papery bracts.

Astrantia major rosea is a herbaceous perennial that flowers in midsummer but produces a later flush if deadheaded. After flowering plants can be rejuvenated by cutting them back close to the ground - fresh new foliage and a late crop of flowers start appearing shortly after. Plants do not spread far but are well-known for self seeding. Grows 18-24" tall in sun to part shade. Zones 5-9
