Astrantia major 'Venice' is a relatively new introduction to the Masterwort genus. It has deep dull red flowers, shaped like pincushions, surrounded by dark red bracts and very dark red ends and good deep red leaves. It flowers from May-August. It likes a position in sun or partial shade where it will make 60cm x 45cm. I'm suggesting we use this instead of Anemone 'September Charm' in the enclosed Formal Garden.
