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 Superstar (syn 'White Giant') - The large, greenish-white flowerheads look like pincushions surrounded by a spidery ruff of green-tinted, white bracts. These are produced en masse above the lobed, dark green leaves from early summer to autumn adding bobbles of colour to the border. Astrantias have become the 'darlings of the designers' in recent years as they lend themselves to most styles of planting, and mix happily with most plants.
