Astrantias, commonly known as masterworts and even Hattie’s pincushions, are lovely hardy herbaceous perennials with branched heads of neat pincushion-like flowers bracts in summer, which are surrounded by a ruff of petals. They do best in moist soil, and are excellent ground cover plants if planted in groups. They look perfect in both formal gardens and more natural and cottage garden settings, as well as when grown in containers.
Astrantia Roma is a fabulous variety with delicate looking, papery, glowing deep pink pincushion-like flowers carried on wiry stems above a mound of attractive deeply lobed, mid-green leaves. It has a much longer flowering period than other pink or red varieties – from May to September. Plant it with other cottage garden favourites or among grasses. It is a star in many of the best gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show every year.
