Buy Astrantia 'Buckland' masterwort: An early flowering, silver-pink form

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, preferably humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dusty pink flowers are surrounded by broad, silvery white bracts, which have attractive green veining and tips. This astrantia often comes into bloom earlier than many of the other cultivars, but as the flowers are sterile it will never become a nuisance. The flower heads make delightful additions to fresh cut arrangements and last well when dried.

  • Garden care: Incorporate plenty of organic matter when planting and water well in dry weather, especially newly established plants. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring and apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the plant. Divided specimens may take some time to establish since they don't like having their roots disturbed.

Astrantia - good addition to the border


A nice plant with attractive flowers which were quite long lasting before fading. Bee friendly and not attacked by slugs and snails, which is a bonus.

Great plant and flowers. Bees loved it as well as unfortunately black flies but that's all part of growing organically.




This is beautiful, am thrilled with it..


Great product and great customer service

The Chelsea Chop (and other methods of extending the flowering season)

Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new
