Buy Thalictrum & Astrantia plant combination Thalictrum & Astrantia plant combination: Easy to grow and lots of flowers

The plants in this collection will die right back in autumn, then fresh new growth will appear again in spring.

    Tolerant of full sun or lightly dappled shade, these summer-flowering perennials will look great in a naturalised setting. The astrantia will also last well in a vase.

    Each collection contains three of each of the following, each in a 9cm pot.

  • Thalictrum aquilegiifolium Fluffy mauve or white flower clusters appear in June and July, held on upright stems above grey-green, fern-like foliage. The dainty blooms of this early flowering meadow rue provide an excellent contrast with larger flowered plants. Perfect for a border in partial shade, the stems need supporting with brushwood or garden canes. Grows to 1m.

  • Astrantia major 'Claret' This is one of the darkest-flowered astrantias, with deep, ruby red pincushion-like flowers with a ruff of longer bracts than many other varieties. The leaves are pretty too; deeply lobed and dark green. Although it is an old cottage-garden favourite, this astrantia works equally well in contemporary-style plantings. Grows to 90cm.

  • Planting tips: Prepare the bed well by digging in lots of composted organic matter before you plant. For best results it is essential that the plants are kept well watered for the first year, particularly during warmer weather.
