Astrantia major Star Gazers are 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 will not 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 white flowers with dark red tips are surrounded by ruff-like bracts and held on upright, branching stems, creating sprays of intriguing star-like blooms. Astrantia are wonderful planted in a shady bed, border, or container where their distinctive blooms are sure to impress.Astrantia Star Gazers are 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 they are slug resistant so the garden 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 which can be left outside all year round to be enjoyed for years to come.
