Flowers: June to October.  Plant in light or part shade.  HxS 75x45cm

The pincushion flower heads of deep ruby-red look superb among damp garden borders and in moist soils near water.  Astrantia ‘Venice’ is more vigorous than other varieties forming attractive clumps of palmate foliage which is dark green and has purple tips.  The long lasting summer blooms make an interesting cut flower for flower arrangers. Hardiness zone H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance.

Cut back hard in early spring and apply a mulch.  Astrantia are greedy but flower beautifully if fed.  Divide every four to five years. Propagate by division.
