Astrantia major 'Star of Billion' promises to twinkle in the garden! Its white and green flowers, surrounded by bracts that look like an Elizabethan collar, are set above lovely, lacy foliage. The long-lasting flowers actually look like they hold countless pins in a pin cushion. Astrantia prefers shade or partial shade and will grow in most garden soils. Adored by florists, Astrantia makes an outstanding cut flower with a vase life of at least 10-14 days.
Clematis urophylla 'Winter Beauty' - The wax-like, creamy-white sepals, which surround a prominent boss of cream anthers, emerge from pale green buds and become paler, and more flared at their tips as they mature. These small, nodding, urn-shaped flowers contrast well with the rich green foliage.
