Astrantia Major Sunningdale Variegated, commonly known as  ‘Masterwort’, is a very attractive clump forming herbaceous perennial which has been accredited with the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. The eye catching, green palmately divided leaves are broadly margined with creamy yellow, a superb backdrop for the pale pink or white flowers produced freely during summer. An ideal flowering perennial for the mixed flower border or patio containers, looking equally stunning as part of an informal cottage garden planting scheme or the more formal town garden, the flowers providing a plentiful supply for cut flower arrangements

Looking After Your Astrantia Major Sunningdale Variegated

Generally pest and disease free, an easy to grow clump forming perennial, requiring very little maintenance and ideal for the long lasting cut flower arrangements, giving a plentiful supply throughout the Summer. Plant in a humus rich, moist, well drained soil in a sunny or partially shaded area of the garden, the sunnier the position the better the flower colour, but do take care to keep the soil from drying out. Late Autumn generally tidy by removing any dead foliage and mulch well using a well rotted garden compost, then in Early Spring provide a good quality general purpose fertiliser to encourage strong, healthy fresh new growth for the coming season.
