Flowers: May-July.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 45x45cm

The beautifully variegated foliage with clear cream edges make this astrantia look very imposing in a shady area.  The flowers are a pale pink with green and white bracts.  A superb spring foliage plant disliking hot summer sun, which causes it to lose the variegation.  Cool moist soil in a shady border or woodland is preferred.  Variegation usually takes a season to develop in the newer foliage. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Keep out of full sun. Can be divided in spring but does not come true from seed.
