Astrantia major

Astrantia major


Astrantia major is an erect, clump-forming perennial with flower stems to 60cm, bearing white pin cushion style flowers... officially described as 'Clusters of tiny, whitish-green flowers are surrounded by petal-like bracteoles which are whitish, tinged with green and pink, with conspicuous veining'.  I love all astrantias, they look great in the garden and in a vase.
