Almost missed it...

Astrantia 'Shaggy'
It almost slipped past me. It's small, white, and subtle--advantages in the spring, but during mosquito season, a recipe for neglect. I like Astrantia, and have several cultivars ranging in color from deep red to white, as in 'Shaggy'. They seem to like my partially-shaded gardens, enjoying similar conditions as Anemone japonica.

Astrantia major 'Rubra'


  1. Such an unassuming little plant, but when you look closely, absolutely beautiful. I think that this is the beauty of doing a blog about gardening, it really makes you look at your plants.

  2. I love the form of these flowers. So interesting!
