Astrantia major Roma is an invaluable plant, perfect for adding often much needed colour into those difficult, shady spots in the garden from May to September and often longer. The petals feel almost papery, and you just won't be able to resist touching them to check they are real. Commonly known as Hattie's Pincushion, because the centre looks like pins stuck into a cushion, though we are never sure who Hattie was. The pincushions of tiny pink flowers are surrounded by ruff-like bracts and held on upright, branching stems, creating sprays of intriguing star-like blooms. Astrantia major Roma are wonderful planted in a shady bed, border or container where their distinctive blooms are sure to impress. Astrantia Roma has been given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society for outstanding performance in the garden. Perfect for pollinators, the bees just adore the blooms. Loved by florists too, Astrantia are excellent as cut or dried flowers in arrangements for your home. A huge bonus is that they are slug resistant so the pests should leave them alone. Astrantia prefer to be grown 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.
