Growing Star of Beauty Masterwort

Astrantias thrive in sheltered borders with dappled shade: they only need some sun to flower well. They will grow near the coast in sheltered conditions and in the wild are found in woodlands, meadows, grasslands and by streams. They at their happiest in any well-drained soil enriched with humus, and they like moist, non-waterlogged conditions near water. Once established, the plants are drought resistant.

Cut everything back in October after the last flowers fade in order to encourage new foliage. Deadhead regularly as these are great self-seeders. It also encourages new blooms.

In Your Garden Design

You can pair them with almost anything, and they are brilliant in shady areas around ferns, hostas and hellebores, or alongside shrubs such as skimmia and under fruit trees. For more cottage gardens style arrangements, pair with Aquilegia Spring Magic and Viola Rebecca, and offset with the lime green displays of Wood Spurge.
