Astrantia major'Roma'


Astrantia major 'Roma' is a lovely fully hardy, herbaceous perennial. It has rich pink flowers that fade as they age and lush green foliage.  It will flower for most of the summer if older flowers are cut back.  It was raised by Piet Oudolf, a favourite designer, who uses it a lot with grasses for a naturalistic plant scheme.  


It is also a great cut flower.

  • Common Name


  • Height and Spread

    0.6m x 0.4m

  • Cultivation

    Like most Astrantia, this one will tolerate most garden conditions from full sun to a shady spot in moist but well drained soil.

    Dead head to keep flowers flowing and at the end of the season either cut back, if you like a tidy garden or try leaving the faded flower heads for autunmal interest and structure.

  • Additional Information

    Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

    I love it as a cut flower as it will last a good lenght of time in a vase and looks great in a wild flower arrangement
