About the Family

Astrantias, commonly known as Masterworts, trace their origins to woodlands across Europe and Asia, bringing a touch of timeless beauty to gardens.

Cultivating these perennials involves selecting a well-drained site where dappled sunlight mimics their native woodland habitats. With their graceful, deeply lobed leaves providing a lush backdrop, the enchanting pin-cushion-like flowers steal the spotlight.

Propagation through division in either spring or autumn ensures the continuation of their legacy, allowing these plants to flourish and grace gardens for years to come.

Astrantias thrive in slightly acidic to neutral soil, their resilient nature shining in various garden settings. Adequate spacing between plants accommodates their elegant growth, fostering an environment where they can unfurl their captivating blooms. With a modest touch of care, including regular watering and minimal intervention, these Masterworts generously reward gardens with a profusion of delicate blossoms from late spring through the summer months.

Astrantias transform any space into a haven of enduring charm, creating a sanctuary where nature's elegance prevails.
