A wonderful shade lover. Astrantia major Shaggy is much loved by florists as an invaluable addition to arrangements both when freshly cut or when dried. Perfect for pollinators too, bees and butterflies just adore Astrantia. Often referred to as Hattie's Pincushion, explained when you look at the blooms and see that the centre looks like pins stuck into a cushion, although we are never sure who Hattie was. The pincushions of tiny, clear white flowers are surrounded by larger ruff-like bracts and held on upright, branching stems, creating sprays of large, intriguing, star-like blooms from May to September, and often longer. Astrantia Shaggy is the perfect plant for moist, shady beds, borders or containers where you won't be able to resist touching the papery petals to check they are real. A huge bonus is that they are slug resistant so the pests should leave them alone. Astrantia major Shaggy prefers to be in moist, well-drained soil in part shade. Reaching a height of approximately 60-80cm and spread 30-45cm Astrantia are fully hardy perennials that can be left outside all year round to be enjoyed for years to come.
